"The truth is out there. But so are lies." — Gillian Anderson as Dana Scully
SUICIDE PREVENTION It is not uncommon for people to experience depression and hopelessness while in jail or prison, particularly ifthey are newly incarcerated, are serving a long sentence, are experiencing family problems or problems getting along with other inmates, or receive bad news. Sometimes, inmates consider committing suicide due to all ofthe pressure they are under. Staff are trained to monitor inmates for signs of suicide, and are trained to refer all concerns to the Psychology Department. However, staff do not always see what inmates see. Ifyou are personally experiencing any ofthe problems noted above, or you or another inmate are showing signs of depression (sadness, tearfulness, lack ofenjoyment in usual activities), withdrawal (staying away from others, reducing phone calls and/or visits), or hopelessness (giving away possessions, stating that "there is nothing to live for"), PLEASE alert a staff member right away. Your input can save a life. PROBLEMRESOLUTIONS Inmate Requests to Staff Member The Bureau Form BP-Admin-70, commonly called a "cop-out", is used to make a written request to a staff member. Any type of request can be made with this form. "Cop-outs" may be obtained in the housing units from the Correctional Officer on duty. Staff members who receive a "Cop-out" will answer the request in a "reasonable" period oftime.
