    Explanation
    The Commissioner may exempt an adult county correctional facility from adherence to a rule or certain provisions or requirements of a rule in instances when strict compliance would result in an undue hardship, an inability to meet a therapeutic, rehabilitative or medical need, or a security risk to the overall management, safe or orderly operation of the facility. Therefore, options I, II, and IV are all valid reasons for exemption.

    Correct Answer
    A. All rule exemptions shall expire 24 months the date of approval by the Commissioner.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "all rule exemptions shall expire 24 months from the date of approval by the Commissioner." This means that any rule exemption that is approved by the Commissioner will be valid for a period of 24 months from the date of approval. After this time, the exemption will no longer be valid.

    Explanation
    Inmates, staff, and committees are all mentioned as individuals or groups who can submit a request for a rule exemption to the adult county correctional facility Administrator. Visitors are not mentioned as being able to submit such requests. Therefore, the correct answer is II, III, and IV.

    Rate this question:

      Staff from the Office of County Services, New Jersey Department of Corrections.

    Correct Answer
    C. Staff from the Office of County Services, New Jersey Department of Corrections.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is staff from the Office of County Services, New Jersey Department of Corrections. This is because the question asks about who should conduct the physical inspection and/or programmatic evaluation of adult county correctional facilities. Since it specifically mentions the New Jersey Department of Corrections, it makes sense that the staff from the Office of County Services within that department would be responsible for this task.

    Rate this question:

  • 7.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is I, II AND IV. This means that the initial report of the findings should be submitted to the Sheriff or adult county correctional facility Administrator, the County Assignment Judge, and the Freeholder Director or County Executive. This ensures that all relevant authorities are informed about the violations found during the inspections and evaluations.

    Rate this question:

  • 8.

    Explanation
    The initial report does not need to contain a notice that corrective action must be effected or initiated within 90 days, and a date for re-inspection does not need to be scheduled. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 9.

      90 days

    • D.

      30 days

    Correct Answer
    C. 90 days
    Explanation
    Upon final reinspection, if acceptable corrective action has not been initiated or completed, the county will receive a notice stating that they must cease accepting any individuals sent to their adult county correctional facility. This notice will take effect 90 days after it is received. This allows the county a reasonable amount of time to address any issues and make the necessary changes before they are no longer allowed to accept new inmates.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    The Facility Administrator in conjunction with the County Executive is planning to remodel a wing of the existing jail.  Once approved by the freeholder board the County Executive may begin the planning stage and have the Facility Administrator draft a letter of intent to the Chief, Office of County Services, Department of Corrections. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the answer "False" is that the sentence states that the Facility Administrator, in conjunction with the County Executive, is planning to remodel a wing of the existing jail. However, it does not mention anything about the approval process or the involvement of the freeholder board. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that once approved by the freeholder board, the County Executive may begin the planning stage and have the Facility Administrator draft a letter of intent to the Chief, Office of County Services, Department of Corrections. Hence, the answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 14.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because it is important for staff work stations and control rooms to have access to toilet facilities. This is necessary for the convenience and comfort of the staff members who may need to use the restroom during their work hours. Having easy access to toilet facilities also promotes good hygiene and ensures that staff members do not have to leave their designated work areas for extended periods of time.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    The design of the facility shall provide for all types of inmates to comingle in the living areas of the general population, such as disciplinary detention, protective custody, etc.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The design of the facility should not allow for all types of inmates to comingle in the living areas of the general population. Inmates with different classifications, such as disciplinary detention or protective custody, should be separated to maintain safety and security within the facility. Allowing these different types of inmates to comingle can lead to conflicts and potentially dangerous situations.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    All general population sleeping units in new correctional facilities must be single occupancy units.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because not all general population sleeping units in new correctional facilities must be single occupancy units. In some cases, multiple occupancy units may be used depending on the design and regulations of the facility. The decision to have single or multiple occupancy units is typically based on factors such as security, space availability, and the specific needs of the facility. Therefore, the statement is incorrect.

Foot candles are a unit of measurement used to quantify the amount of light falling on a surface. In this case, it is necessary to provide at least 20 foot candles of illumination in order to ensure sufficient lighting for these areas.

    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement states that the illumination in the adult county correctional facility should be suitable for the task at hand, and the light fixtures should be tamper-proof and protected by laminated tempered glass or break-resistant plastic lenses. This is important for security reasons and to ensure the safety of the facility and its occupants. Therefore, the statement is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False

Therefore, the correct answer is false, as the statement is not accurate.

    Rate this question:

    Correct Answer
    C. That he shall be permitted to eat outside of his cell moving forward
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the inmate shall be permitted to eat outside of his cell moving forward. This means that the inmate will no longer be locked in their cell during meal times and will have the opportunity to eat in a different location. This response acknowledges the inmate's complaint about the plumbing issues and the unpleasant smell in their cell, and offers a solution by allowing them to eat outside of their cell.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Adult county correctional facilities shall have a reception and discharge area. The space designed for the reception and discharge of inmates shall be constructed outside the security area but inside the inmates' living quarters.  There shall be one entrance for inmates and staff from a sally-port or safety vestibule into the receiving area with a minimum of corridors or passageways.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because adult county correctional facilities should have a reception and discharge area, but it should be constructed outside the security area and not inside the inmates' living quarters. Additionally, there should be one entrance for inmates and staff from a sally-port or safety vestibule into the receiving area, and stairs should be avoided.

    Rate this question:

    • D.

      40 square feet

    Correct Answer
    C. 60 square feet
    Explanation
    Single occupancy holding rooms must have a minimum of 60 square feet of floor area. This is necessary to provide enough space for a person to comfortably move around and ensure their safety and well-being while in the room. A smaller area may not be sufficient for the person to move freely or could create a cramped and uncomfortable environment.

    • D.

      40 square feet

    Correct Answer
    A. 100 square feet
    Explanation
    Multiple occupancy holding rooms must have a minimum floor area of 100 square feet. This requirement ensures that there is enough space for occupants to move around comfortably and maintain a safe distance from each other. It also allows for proper ventilation and helps prevent the spread of diseases or infections in crowded areas. Having a larger floor area in these rooms promotes the well-being and safety of the individuals using them.
