The May/June 2017 issue of Correctional News Magazine features articles by Senior Vice President Ken McGinnis and Executive Vice President Stephen A. Carter, AICP.
In "Navigating the Changes in Restrictive Housing," McGinnis discusses new and unique challenges facing today's correctional administrators. As the philosophies and principles that drive the operational and program approaches within prisons and jails evolve, administrators are being asked to provide new and expanded services with even fewer resources. McGinnis outlines some of today's most pressing issues and the important roles creativity and technology will play in improving efficiency and effectiveness.
In "Why Tone Matters in Decision-Making," Carter describes the variables that come into play when establishing the character or "tone" of a facility. Every operational and design choice contributes to this "tone," says Carter, and electronic security systems are no exception.
