    • A.

      A bar association

    • B.

      Law libraries

    • C.

      Law school(s)

    • D.

      A bar association, law school(s), or other law libraries

    Correct Answer
    D. A bar association, law school(s), or other law libraries
    Explanation
    Arrangements shall be made with a bar association, law school(s), or other law libraries to borrow law books not contained in the adult county correctional facility's own collection. This means that the correctional facility will reach out to these institutions to borrow law books that they do not already have. This shows that the facility is actively seeking to provide access to a wide range of legal resources for its inmates.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Inmates who so request shall be given access to the Inmate Law Library on a schedule which permits as many inmates as possible to use the library, depending on: 1. The resources of the adult county correctional facility; 2. The availability of space; and 3. Security Considerations.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Inmates who request access to the Inmate Law Library will be granted access based on certain factors. These factors include the resources of the correctional facility, the availability of space, and security considerations. This means that the number of inmates allowed to use the library at any given time will depend on these factors. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    While attending the law library Inmate Smith was observed breaking the computer.  As punishment for the infraction, you order his law library access denied for a 3 day period.  Your actions do not violate 10A.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because denying Inmate Smith's law library access for a 3 day period without a valid reason or due process may violate his rights under the 10th Amendment (10A) of the Constitution. The 10th Amendment protects individual rights and limits the power of the government, including prison authorities, to infringe upon those rights without proper justification. In this case, there is no mention of a valid reason or due process, so the action of denying access may be considered a violation of the 10th Amendment.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In certain extreme instances and with the approval of a supervisor of the rank of lieutenant or above, an inmate may be denied direct personal access to the Inmate Law Library. This statement is false. It implies that denial of direct personal access to the library is a possibility, but this is not the case. The statement suggests that denial of access is a rare occurrence, but it does not indicate that it is never allowed.

This time frame allows them ample opportunity to meet with clients, gather information, and carry out their legal duties.

      N.J.A.C. 4A

    Correct Answer
    B. The inmate's civil rights
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the inmate's civil rights. This means that when imposing sanctions for infractions, it is important to ensure that the inmate's civil rights are not violated. The sanctions should be directly related to the infraction committed and should be applied fairly to all inmates. This ensures that the punishment is appropriate and does not infringe upon the rights of the inmate.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Staff at the adult county correctional facility shall develop a written inmate disciplinary rule book which includes: 1. All chargeable offences; 2. The schedule of sanctions; 3. The disciplinary procedures; 4. The disciplinary appeal process; and 5. A notice that N.J.A.C. 10A:4, Inmate Discipline, also applies to State sentenced inmates incarcerated within the adult county correctional facility.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The staff at the adult county correctional facility is required to develop a written inmate disciplinary rule book that includes various components such as all chargeable offenses, the schedule of sanctions, the disciplinary procedures, the disciplinary appeal process, and a notice that N.J.A.C. 10A:4, Inmate Discipline, also applies to State sentenced inmates incarcerated within the adult county correctional facility. This statement is true because it accurately reflects the requirement for the development of a comprehensive inmate disciplinary rule book.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Each inmate shall be given a copy of the disciplinary rule book within seven days and the inmate shall sign a form acknowledging receipt of the rule book.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it states that each inmate shall be given a copy of the disciplinary rule book within seven days and the inmate shall sign a form acknowledging receipt of the rule book. However, the statement does not specify whether or not the inmates actually receive the rule book or sign the form. Therefore, without this information, we cannot assume that the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Staff members are not required to assist inmates who are illiterate, not sufficiently conversant with the English language or otherwise unable to read due to a physical or medical inability in understanding the disciplinary rules.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Staff members are required to assist inmates who are illiterate, not sufficiently conversant with the English language, or otherwise unable to read due to a physical or medical inability in understanding the disciplinary rules. This is because it is the responsibility of staff members to ensure that all inmates have a clear understanding of the rules and regulations in order to maintain a safe and orderly environment within the facility.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Which of the following are required when an employee prepares a disciplinary report? I.   The specific rule violated II.  Facts supporting the charge III. The disposition of any physical evidence IV. The date and time of the hearing V. The reporting staff member's signature

    • A.

      All of the above

    • B.

      I, II, III, AND IV

    • C.

      I, II, IV, AND V

    • D.

      I, II, III, AND V

    Correct Answer
    D. I, II, III, AND V
    Explanation
    When an employee prepares a disciplinary report, they are required to include the specific rule violated (I) in order to clearly identify the offense. They also need to include facts supporting the charge (II) to provide evidence and justification for the disciplinary action. The disposition of any physical evidence (III) is necessary to document any tangible proof related to the violation. Lastly, the reporting staff member's signature (V) is required to authenticate the report and establish accountability. Therefore, all of the above options (I, II, III, AND V) are necessary when an employee prepares a disciplinary report.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Employees shall prepare a disciplinary report when the employees have probable cause that an inmate has committed a violation of the adult county correctional facility rules.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Employees are not responsible for preparing a disciplinary report solely based on their own belief or suspicion. The statement mentions that employees should prepare a disciplinary report only when they have "probable cause" that an inmate has violated the rules. This indicates that there should be reasonable evidence or justification to support the claim before taking disciplinary action. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Punishment for any Inmate Law Library infraction, such as damage to the law books or disruptive conduct, shall ordinarily include denial of access to the Inmate Law Library

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it states that the punishment for any infraction in the Inmate Law Library would ordinarily include denial of access to the library. However, the word "ordinarily" suggests that denial of access is not always the punishment for every infraction. Therefore, the statement is not entirely true and the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

    • D.

      A minor violation, corrective action

    Correct Answer
    B. A minor violation, On-The-Spot Correction
    Explanation
    When an inmate commits a minor violation, it is immediately addressed and sanctioned through On-The-Spot Correction. This means that the correction or punishment is applied immediately after the offense is committed, without delay or the need for further investigation or deliberation. This process is reserved for minor violations, as major violations may require more extensive investigation and disciplinary action.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the answer "False" is that the statement is incorrect. According to the given information, if the shift supervisor agrees with the minor violation report, the On-The-Spot Correction sanction should be imposed within 48 hours of the supervisor's review. Therefore, the correct answer should be "True" instead of "False".

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. 15 days, 30 days, 60 days
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 15 days, 30 days, 60 days. This means that for major violations, the authorized sanctions include up to 15 days of Disciplinary Detention, up to 30 days of loss of privileges, and up to 60 days of suspension of any one or more of the above sanctions at the discretion of the Disciplinary Board/hearing officer. The other options listed do not match the correct combination of authorized sanctions for major violations.

This means that if an inmate is found guilty of a single disciplinary charge, the maximum punishment they can receive is 15 days in Disciplinary Detention.

This means that as a notification of the major violation charge(s), a copy of the disciplinary report shall be served upon the inmate within two days of the violation, unless there are exceptional circumstances. Additionally, the notice of the disciplinary hearing should be served at least one day prior to the hearing, unless the inmate waives the notice in writing.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation

    Rate this question:

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the correct answer, which is False, is that even though Hearing Officer Nick was the only witness to the inmate on inmate assault, it does not automatically authorize him to conduct the hearing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because inmates confined in Prehearing Detention are not guaranteed a hearing within seven calendar days of their placement. The question implies that they should receive a hearing within that time frame, but it does not specify any legal requirement or policy that enforces this. Therefore, the statement is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 33. 

    Inmate Smith was found guilty of multiple rule violations and sentenced to 20 days in disciplinary detention.  He is appealing the decision on the basis that he was refused to access the Disciplinary Board's deliberation. Inmate Smith must win his appeal based upon these grounds.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Inmate Smith must win his appeal based on the grounds that he was refused access to the Disciplinary Board's deliberation. However, the correct answer is False. The fact that he was denied access to the deliberation does not automatically guarantee that he will win his appeal. The outcome of the appeal will depend on various factors, such as the specific rules and regulations regarding access to deliberations, the strength of his argument, and the decision of the appellate authority.

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    Inmates are not provided the opportunity to call witnesses.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that inmates are not given the chance to call witnesses, but the correct answer is false. Inmates do have the opportunity to call witnesses in certain situations, such as during a trial or hearing. This allows them to present evidence and testimonies that may support their case or provide additional information. Therefore, the statement is incorrect, and inmates are indeed provided the opportunity to call witnesses.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because it is a fundamental right of an inmate to confront and cross-examine their accuser and adverse witnesses. However, there are exceptions to this right if it would pose a risk to the safety of the facility or the physical safety of a witness. This ensures a fair and just process while also prioritizing the safety and security of everyone involved.
