This is the April 17, 2018 hearing on "Oversight of the Federal Bureau of Prisons," held before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations of the Committee on the Judiciary. From the testimony of Mark Inch: "Our mission is challenging: protecting the safety of the public, our staff, and the inmates while also preparing inmates to be productive, law-abiding citizens when they return to our communities. Our prisons hold tens of thousands of drug traffickers, many weapons offenders, and other dangerous individuals. We house over 23,000 gang-affiliated inmates who pose threats in and outside our facilities. More than 40 percent of our inmates classify as high and medium security, due in large part to the extensive criminal histories, severity of the current confining offense, and the histories of violence. Yet and still, our staff answer the call to duty every day. I come to the Bureau with a great appreciation for our mission and have a well-developed set of principles about our individual responsibility as corrections professionals. I applaud the Bureau's philosophy that all staff are correctional workers first. I am convinced that this philosophy is a critical element to the long-term success of the agency." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Mark S. Inch.
