Safe Uses for Ligature Resistant TV Enclosures in Correctional Facilities

A TV screen isn’t usually seen as a hazardous item, however it can be lethal if misused; in the wrong situation, a shattered piece of glass can become a weapon against another person or as a knife to cause self harm.

The obvious answer is to protect the screen with a specially fashioned enclosure. However, there are several to be found on the internet – but be aware; they are not all what they seem…

Correctional facilities, like detention centres, jails and prisons are particularly vulnerable areas where a television is a possible endangerment; whether an individual person has access to a screen in their room or one is located in a public area (like a social lounge). Surely it is better to act on prevention rather than cure. But the consideration should not on be the damage and harm which can be caused, but also the monetary value. Replacing television sets adds up considerably and a financial budget should not be used on extravagant resources, but put to more good use.

As published in the establishment and government guidelines of the Prison Service Orders, also known as P.O.S.s., governance and the law is very strict on the safety and welfare of it’s inmates, which if broken or not heeded to can have harmful effects on a person, but also on the establishment which has disregarded the rules. Usually a fine is issued, after the conclusion of the incident or the correctional facility may be closed down for non-compliance. Detainees, under the correctional guidelines have the right to a risk-free surrounding, where their well-being is upheld and they have the opportunity to partake in a ‘normal’ lifestyle.

Much investigation has gone into the suitable lifestyle of detainee and correctional facilities; what is acceptable and not appropriate, but most people will agree furnishings, for example a television, is not seen as a indulgent, but more as essential, which permits people to keep in touch with what is going on in the world and which may not be available to them on a regular basis, due to their detention reasons. With the security of a ligature resistant TV enclosure, both the inmate and staff (and visitors) are in a safe environment, whilst still having the option of programs, radio and games; both personally and socially.

Screens have become a familiar feature, as entertainment and displaying information, particularly within holding facilities and need to be protected against damaged: intentional or inadvertent and protection not only saves money in the long run, it can also prevent harm and makes economical sense.
