Conditions at Tutwiler are generally peaceful and orderly. Since this claim may be brought against the Department officials only in their official capacities, Clanton v. The evidence reflected that most positions in the jail did not involve contact with inmates.

Apparently, he was able to summon a female officer to perform this task. The Department asserts next that femaleness is a bona fide occupational qualification bfoq for shift commander at Tutwiler. The employer may rebut the presumption by articulating a legitimate, nondiscriminatory reason for the action, a reason that is clear and reasonably specific and worthy of credence.

A prima facie case of discrimination raises the presumption that discriminatory intent motivated the adverse correvtions action. If one of these positions is currently available, the Department must immediately fill it with Edwards.


Here, the certification was selective because it was limited to women. Finally, the thesis asked whether it was possible to effectively research the sensitive topic of corruption and misconduct in the threatening world of a prison?

To support its bfoq defense, the Department relied on two of its regulations. The court rejected the defense, stating that “the mere fact that a state enacts a discriminatory regulation does not create a Correctioms defense for one who follows such a regulation.

The findings of the three studies contribute significantly to the field of penology and criminology, not only because they present a typology of non-custodial staff behaviours for the first time, but also because they identify a number of important processes and factors involved in the interaction between non-custodial staff and inmates.

In the winter ofthe Department filled the other shift commander position with a woman from the personnel office’s reemployment register. Here, there is direct evidence of intentional sex discrimination. Although their willingness to participate might have reflected their desire to equally understand ‘why’, the non-custodial staff only did so if they were able to remain anonymous.

How did these relationships, whether abusive or not, develop?

Were the non-custodial staff members poor ethical decision-makers? In fact, in his present position as supervisor of transfer agents, Edwards monitors the transportation of female inmates without assistance from other officers and cprrections is now more likely to have to search a female inmate than when he served as acting shift commander.

Shelby Memorial Hospital, F. The challenge therefore is for the findings of this research to be implemented into 581t changes that reduce the likelihood of entrapment of non-custodial staff, that decrease the abuse of power that staff have over inmates, that recognises the adaptation that inmates must make to survive in a de-humanising environment, and that increases the ethical management of prisons.

Though he held the position correctios an acting basis, he held it for a considerable period of time and performed all the duties that it required. The county raised a bfoq defense and relied on a state regulation requiring a guard of an inmate’s sex to be present when a guard of the opposite sex entered the area where the inmate was confined.
