II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: Scope of work: Installation of CCTV Surveillance Cameras, monitors and supporting equipment. Provide compatability with other NDOC systems. Provide recording and playback capability. Provide data storage. Provide interior and exterior coverage.
Project Justification: SDCC is a medium security prison designated as a program yard with over 2,000 inmates and a video surveillance system is needed to enable the monitoring of inmate movementand activity throughout the facility, including high risk areas with no weapond coverage such as Culinary, Laundry, Prison Industries, Gatehouse, Administration, Central Heating Plant, and a number of other program areas.
Project Background Information: A video surveillance system would deter inmate-on-staff, inmate-on-inmate and other incidents, and security and safety would be greatly enhanced and invesligations reduced. The system could also provide evidence for criminal prosecution for illegal activities and defense for very expensive inmate litigation. As evidenced by surveillance equipment already in place in other insitutions within this state and elsewhere, surveillance cameras provide a deterrent for a variety of incidents occurring within this institution such as those cited below and also significantly improve prevention, and reaction time thereby affecting greater security, and reducing and minimizing associated risks and potential for escape, and other injuries to staff and inmates within the facility by putting “eyes” in every corridor of the facility, and also help restore some of the coverage lost due to limited resources, particularly in areas where the potential of incidents is highest, and where civilian staff works with inmates independent of custody staff. The addition of an effective camera system and monitoring would also provide tracking capability and a means to affect prosecution by recording and maintaining visual evidence such incidents and to parties involved. Scope of the project: Install an extensive security system to include computer monitoring and video surveillance of esentially all areas within the institution using cameras and monitors and other sophisticated electronic devices.

Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
Will this project require any hazardous material abatement? No
Ramifications if the Project is not Approved
(Short Essay): Monitoring of inmate movement will continue as is, totally dependent upon staff coverage in all areas. Inmate-on-inmate and inmate-on-staff incidents will continue at the current rate, and lengthy investigations will continue to be required and inmate lawsuits lost. As a point of refernce, during 2008/2009, we identified approximately 135 incidents involving assault and battery, threats of violence, disturbances and other riotous behavior, contraband, drugs, and weapons, fights, stabbings, and inmates hiding that occurred within this institution. This is not a comprehensive reporting of these types of incidents, but is conservatively estimated to represent about 40% of the total incidents that occurred at SDCC. Each of these incidents involves situations that pose potential and real harm to staff and inmates. Number of times requested previously: at least twice previously.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): It is also apparent that such incidents are on the rise, and it is critical to the safety and security of the staff, inmates and general public that we take such necessary steps to minimize such risks within this institution before serious injuries are sustained, or we experience escapes.
