Jail Safety Padding
Padding for Prisons, Jails & Corrections
What is the purpose of a padded cell in corretional facilities?
Does my correctional facility need a padded jail cell for safety?
In general, you want to use a jail cell if de-escalation and other preventive strategies have failed and there remains the immediate potential for harm to the inmate or other people. We also like the term “de-escalation room” because ultimately, what we all want is to have inmates calm enough where there is no potential danger to inmates or staff. In other words, padded jail cells should be seen as one of the tools in your de-escalation toolbox.
Of course, all tools should only be used for their intended use. Padded cells should never be used as punishment or to create unnecessary mental or physical suffering. A padded jail cell is meant for SAFETY of inmates and staff. Any tool in the corrections industry can be misused and it is important corrections facility administrators create clear and appropriate guidelines of how to utilize a padded jail cell for the good of all involved as well as enforce those guidelines.
