What to consider when purchasing cleaning supplies

The most common weapons used against corrections staff come from items issued to inmates.

What to consider when purchasing cleaning supplies for your facility

  • Are the tools made from Wood, Metal, Fiberglass, or Plastic?

  • Do the products/supplies eliminate the ability to be sharpened into a weapon or shank?

  • Are the products strong and durable?

  • Are the products resistent to bacteria, mold, or mildew?

  • How many other facilities have adopted the products?

 

“Anything we can do to enhance security, everybody is onboard. Since the introduction of the Briarwood Products line to our facility, we have reduced instances where offender cleaning products have been compromised for malicious intentions and staff has greater sense of security.” – Lt. Wine Ohio State Penitentiary
