You are the Director of Adult Prisons for the State of Ohio. Gangs have negatively impacted many of your maximum security institutions, and violence has escalated. You would like to move all known gang members to one unit in one institution to limit their influence and decrease violence. However, this will involve several other agencies as you relocate prisoners, parole officers, and other treatment specialists. You are also faced with a new wave of politically supported reform toward rehabilitation and a renewed emphasis on due process for prisoners. Your wardens also disagree with this type of consolidation and have proposed smaller gang units within each prison in order to decrease the gang members’ interaction with one another.
