The OIG identified these concerns in connection with two incidents in which BOP staff members sustained injuries during SORT mock exercises. Both incidents occurred about a year ago. The BOP has informed the OIG that the SORT is not conducting mock exercises during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. In this memorandum, the OIG makes four recommendations to address the concerns we identified."
