Inmate Behavior Management

Jun. 11, 2018 - Jun. 14, 2018--The most fundamental goal of every jail is to maintain a safe and secure environment for inmates, staff, and visitors. Effectively managing inmate behavior is critical to this goal. NIC’s IBM program is based on the previous work in two major areas: podular direct supervision and inmate classification.

Overview

The most fundamental goal of every jail is to maintain a safe and secure environment for inmates, staff, and visitors. Effectively managing inmate behavior is critical to this goal. NIC’s IBM program is based on the previous work in two major areas: podular direct supervision and inmate classification.

The IBM plan consists of six essential elements:

  • Assessing inmate risks and needs at various points during his/her detention;
  • Assigning inmates to housing
  • Meeting inmates' basic needs
  • Defining and conveying expectations
  • Supervising inmates
  • Keeping inmates productively occupied with appropriate activities

  • These elements, once established, function as an ongoing, integrated process designed to generate positive inmate behavior—that is, behavior that complies with staff’s expectations of what is acceptable. Integrating these elements puts control of the jail in the hands of the staff instead of the inmates. The purpose of this program is to educate and assist local jails in developing and integrating an IBM plan as an operational philosophy. The six elements of IBM, staff values and beliefs, staff roles, aligning jail operations, managing staff resistance and administrative commitment to IBM are some of the topics that will be explored with participants to accomplish this goal.
