This assessment is based on the Facts for Consideration on page _93___
THREAT| RISK| COUNTERMEASURE|
| Probability| Criticality| Total| |
Example:Physical assault| 9| 4| 13| Highly visible officer presence| Inmate Escape| 10| 5| 15| Extra guards to help prevent escape attempt| Inmate Riots| 8| 4| 12| Officers carry visible weapons to show that if inmates get out of hand measures will be taken |.
Transport vehicle driver exhausted | 9| 4| 13| Extra driver to transport vehicle in addition to other guards that arent driving| Inmates take over the van| 10| 4| 14| Have the inmates checked before they get on the van and then handcuffed so they are not able to move around or get close to the driver| Have more than one officer on the van | 8| 3| 11| One officer can drive and the other can keep an eye on the inmates|.
The inmate escape is very important. If there are extra guards then it will be easy to prevent this from happening, especially since some trips can take up to 48 hours to complete. With all the stopping (two to eight stops on any given trip) and going it would be great to have the countermeasure.
comes to inmates taking over the van, I feel as though that is something that can happen even if there are two officers on the van. Inmates are strong and they always have something up their sleeves. So if we were to take the countermeasure and actually have them checked before they get on the van and then handcuffed it makes the ride safer and less threatening.
