Con Games Inmates Play, Second Edition
This program details how inmates attempt to entrap staff members by using
psychological con games. Initially an inmate examines the officer for
weaknesses. Any laxness on the part of the staff could be the window needed to
provide the inmate with opportunity. If an officer appears vulnerable, the
inmate begins working his manipulations and the unwitting officer soon finds
himself in a compromised situation. Many times staff members are simply trying
to be compassionate or trusting towards inmates because of a strong desire to
please, but this can prove to be monumental mistake if it goes against the
institution's policy. In this video, scenes between correctional staff and
inmates show clues inmates look for in selecting a target, detail how an officer
is set up, and follow steps inmates take to spring the trap- attempting to force
the officer to bend rules in their favor. The program also shows step officers
should take ensure they do not fall prey to inmates' manipulations and what to
do if one believes they have been manipulated

Steve Farber approaches leadership as you would approach an extreme sport. That is, learn to love the fear and exhilaration that naturally comes with the territory. The problem, Farber points out, is that many people who call themselves leaders are only posing. They accept the title without putting their skin in the game. Extreme Leadership is the interplay of fear and love, two of the most powerful forces in the human experience. This program is intended for those who want to be both a dynamic and an effective leader.

Narrated by producer and host Bill Kurtis, this episode uses Arizona State Prison and Pelican Bay State Prison in California as examples of two institutions that are considered Supermax. In this type of prison, each inmate is given his own 80 square foot cell in which he spends 23 hours. The question of whether this prison system is too harsh and too restricted is continually asked. To try and get to the bottom of this heated question, Investigative Reports talks with psychologists, prison officials, correctional officers, wardens, and even some prisoners who speak about their views of this type of maximum security.

Mandela. Imprisoned 27 years for standing up for what he believed, Nelson
Mandela persevered and was able to galvanize the world around his struggle to

vision, who are a legacy of his epic quest. Among these individuals are his
daughter Zindzi, who spent her formative years apart from her father due to his
imprisonment, his former prison guard, a South African musician who was

He discusses how the behaviors that often lead a person to addiction and criminal activity convey immediate gratification, along with an illusion of power and a false sense of control. The host also emphasized that in order to avoid returning to prison it is important that individuals accept responsibility for their actions, develop humility and become personally accountable for their actions and behaviors. This presentation provides successful strategies for transitioning back into the community

North Branch Correctional Facility - Hi Tech Prison
This DVD about the North Branch Correctional Institution (NBCI) is an episode of Megastructures, a National Geographic Channel TV Series. NBCI is the largest, most technologically advanced maximum security prison built as of 2007. The designers of this massive, mega prison have not adopted the severe isolation approach to confinement that is typical of most existing supermax prisons with inmates housed in their cells 23 hours a day. Instead, at NBCI inmates move about the facility at will to gather in the dining hall for meals participate in classroom instruction, and assemble for other services and activities. The design and construction of the facility is highlighted. NBCI was built as an inverted fortress with multilayer perimeter so that inmates can't get out. The walls of the modular cells are super strong, made with super dense concrete and reinforced steel bars. The latest in engineering accounts for the improved security features, including remote control cameras, secret control rooms, and five -story control tower that control the flush of toilets so inmates cannot dispose of contraband. NBCI, under the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, is located in western Maryland in the city of Cumberland.
