Okay, well, just so you're aware, Commissioner, I've heard from them, and they tell a different story. They're quite concerned that, again, the front-line correctional officers have the potential to be impacted by a weapon being in the hands of a violent offender and an addict. They're concerned about that. I'm concerned that this decision will have a risk and a negative impact on front-line officers, so I would certainly encourage you.... The story I'm hearing from them directly is different from what I'm hearing from you. There is obviously a disconnect.
One of the concerns I have also is that you've rolled this out slowly, you say, and there are only two institutions in which this needle program is implemented. Surprisingly, or interestingly, one of those institutions had its first heroin overdose in 15 years. I'm wondering how you reconcile that with the concept that prisons are supposed to be places where prisoners remain drug-free. I can tell you story after story of prisoners I locked up personally who said, “Thank you. I got clean in jail. If it weren't for jail, I'd be dead.”
This is not good for our inmates. I'm just curious to know how you can reconcile that with the Drug-Free Prisons Act.
