Description

The following is a summary of the observations, findings, and recommendations of Lindsay M. Hayes, Project Director of the National Center on Institutions and Alternatives, following the provision of short-term technical assistance to the Massachusetts Department of Correction (DOC). During the past year, the DOC experienced a high number of inmate suicides within its correctional system. Because the incidence of suicide was greater than in previous years, the DOC quickly began to examine the deaths through a previously established mortality review process, as well as review of various policy and procedural directives relating to suicide prevention. In order to more independently assess current practices, as well as offer any appropriate recommendations for improving DOC suicide prevention policies and practices, Commissioner Kathleen M. Dennehy decided to seek the assistance of an outside consultant.
