Inmate Grievance Officer
One of the most important tools in any jail is the grievance process. The grievance process provides inmates a formal method to file complaints regarding conditions as well as events in the jail where the prisoners believe their rights have been violated. By providing prisoners with a proper grievance process, the jail administration can resolve issues within the jail environment before the conditions or events lead to a full-blown lawsuit. Furthermore, the existence of a formal grievance process may lessen the likelihood that if a lawsuit is filed that it will be successful because of it will document that issues have been addressed.
