Flexible Hygiene Products for Maximum Security Environments

Violent disturbances and DIY weapons put correctional officers and inmates in real danger!

Correctional officers or prison guards play a crucial role within the prison system. But working as OraBrite Secure Care Productsa correctional officer brings with it dangerous job conditions that are related to this line of work. Research has shown that correctional officers experience high stress levels, burnout, mental health-related consequences, serious injury or even death as a result of their jobs.

Endless Creativeness

It seems nothing brings out the cleverness in a person like endless days spent staring at the cell walls thinking about the outside world and freedoms lost. Because inmates have little else to think about besides what's happening within their prison walls, they often become focused on the surrounding relationships and conflicts around them.

While prisoners are supposed to be unarmed, they are very resourceful in devising innovative weapons to attack fellow inmates or even guards. With nothing but time on their hands, weapon ingenuinity is off the charts when one is behind bars. 

Inmates make everything from flamethrowers to fully-functioning crossbows. Plus, there's the usual array of shivs, shanks, knives, and blades - all made out of ordinary items that can be bought in the commissary or brought inside from the outside world. Weapons can be made from scrap metal from the workshop, a plastic eating utensil, a toothbrush or even a crucifix – all in attempt to create a device to stab another person.

Weaponized Toiletries

The shank, or shiv, is probably the most common weapon. A shank is typically a metal or plastic object used like a knife. To give it a sharp edge or point inmates will often use the masonry walls or the cement floors to sharpen or whittle objects. Typically the length of the shank is small. The handle is often held in the palm of the fist with the blade protruding between the middle and ring fingers like a push dagger. Its target is typically  the most lethal parts of the human anatomy. Inmates also create a weapon referred to as a razor whip. Razor whips use a type of handle made from objects like a comb, toothbrush or furniture post and have an anchored line attached to it that consists of a shoe lace, flexible cord or piece of fabric. The razor blades are adhered to the line and when swung, it creates something like a slashing knife. 

OraBrite® Secure Care Correctional Security Products Provide the Perfect Balance of Safety, Health & Quality
