This project examines correctional officer misconduct in the United States and how to detect and prevent it from occurring. The author did a content analysis of available literature regarding misconduct incidents in attempt to narrow the causation factor(s) to its existence. With the lack of empirical data regarding misconduct, the author was able to reference other criminal justice entities to provide educational knowledge on prevention, detection and to determine the causation factor(s). The author provides several examples of prevention and detection techniques. With prevention and detection techniques at the fore front of this project, the author was able to determine that ineffective supervision is the causation factor to correctional officer misconduct in United States jails and prisons.
