Placing deaf inmates together has a positive effect, both for the individual in prison and for the officials and guards who are responsible for his care and treatment. There will be less, not more, of a management problem when deaf prisoners are grouped together, irrespective of the crimes for which they are being imprisoned. Tomoka has a facility in which deaf people have been grouped. There is another in Huntsville, Texas including a G.E.D. program for deaf inmates.
I would like to hear from deaf inmates there, how things are within the program. I would also like to hear from guards, administrators and other personnel, what their experiences are with deaf inmates. What do you experience in managing diverse populations in the system?
