Editorial Advisory Board: The BCDC and solitary confinement

We understand that solitary confinement may be the last resort for some prisoners, and we are not saying the all solitary confinement policies should be eliminated. However, we urge that BCDC improve its performance with juveniles in its care and we recommend strongly that Maryland’s correctional services review its use of solitary confinement with all adult prisoners, and adopt -- to the extent it has not done so already -- the recommendations of the Vera Institute report.
