Inmate Safety in Jails: Physical Violence, Sexual Abuse, and Self-Harming Behavior

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The Jail Sexual Assault Prevention study examines jail safety in three jails across the country. This presentation reports on the incidence of three threats to inmate safety within the selected study sites: physical violence, sexual abuse, and self-harming behavior. Analyses of official jail records from 2005-2007 examine the frequency of these incidents and where these acts tend to occur (e.g. in cells, showers, closets, common areas, etc.). Perceptions of jail safety are also explored through interviews (N=73) with jail staff and a survey (N=393) administered to inmates at each of the jail sites. This presentation will highlight common themes found across the three sites and make recommendations about jail safety measures.
