What is Institutional Abuse?
Institutional abuse is the maltreatment of individuals from those in power, this can be especially in jail. If you or someone you love is an inmate in any type of institution as a result of being convicted of a crime, this does not mean you do not have rights. All inmates have the right to be provided with a safe living environment and treated with respect and reasonable care. You should not have to live in fear of abuse from fellow inmates or staff members in your institution.
Types of institutional abuse we defend against include:
- Abusive interrogation techniques
- Physical abuse, including corporal punishment
- Illicit beatings or unnecessary physical restraints
- Psychological abuse or verbal abuse
- Unnecessary strip searches
- Deprivation or exposure
- Sexual assault or rape
- Enabling drug abuse or sexual violence
