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

Extreme Leadership
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.

This documentary, part of the A&E Investigative Reports series, goes inside a Supermax prison, where security is the number one priority. 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.

Though not a complete biography, this DVD is about the life of Nelson 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 end apartheid ... even from behind bars at South Africa's brutal and remote Robben Island prison.

Against a backdrop of historical footage, this Nobel Peace Prize winner's own story is told through the eyes of 10 people who were there, who were inspired by his 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 influenced by Mandela's revolutionary vision, a Canadian schoolteacher who shares about the impact of Mandela's release on his teaching, and others. Also included is the testimony of Adriaan Vlok, former minister of law and order during apartheid rule.

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.
