    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The staff to inmate ratio is 1:48, meaning that for every staff member, there are 48 inmates.

    • D.

      Indirect Supervision

    Correct Answer
    C. Direct Supervision
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Direct Supervision. The podular jail concept refers to a type of correctional facility design where inmates are housed in small, self-contained units called pods. These pods are designed to allow for direct supervision of inmates by correctional officers, who are located within the pod and have constant visual contact with the inmates. This concept aims to improve safety and security within the facility by allowing for more effective monitoring and interaction between staff and inmates.

    • C.

      Direct Supervision

    Correct Answer
    B. Remote
    Explanation
    Remote supervision refers to a jail concept where the design includes linear hallways bordered by cells that are typically connected to a centralized administrative area. This means that the correctional officers or staff can monitor and supervise the inmates from a central location, rather than being physically present in each cell or hallway. This design allows for increased efficiency and control over the inmate population, as well as easier access to administrative functions and resources.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The _____ jail design is where cells form the perimeter around a common area.

    Correct Answer
    Remote
  • 7. 

    Direct supervision is where corrections officers are stationed inside the housing unit _____ hours a day.

    Correct Answer
    24
    Explanation
    Direct supervision is a type of prison management where corrections officers are present inside the housing unit for the entire 24 hours of the day. This means that there is constant monitoring and oversight of the inmates, ensuring their safety and security. This approach allows for immediate response to any incidents or emergencies that may arise, and it also helps to maintain order and discipline within the facility. By being present at all times, corrections officers can effectively manage and control the inmate population, reducing the risk of violence or escapes.
