Effective prison management is critical to the safety of inmates, workers and the surrounding community. Staffers at correctional facilities face multiple challenges on a daily basis. Despite tight budgets, they must still find ways to run a secure facility that keeps prisoners safe from each other and from themselves for the duration of their sentences.
No correctional facility manager wants an understaffed – and thus more dangerous facility. Proper scheduling techniques are necessary not only to reduce overtime costs, but also to ensure that facilities always have enough qualified staff members in the right place to ensure incident-free, smooth operations.
Add to that the challenge of managing corrections personnel in a multiple facility campus that house thousands of inmates awaiting trial or serving sentences. From correctional officers, to prison administrators to food services and rehabilitation works -- effectively managing a workforce like this 24/7, 365 days a year is a daunting task.
