Conflicts between inmates at JCIK are frequent due to low level security; these can
result in serious consequences including: serious damage to property, bodily injuries,
self-harming, suicide attempts and suicide. Originally these acts resulted in
disciplinary measures such as loosing privileges or being sent to ‘confinement’ rooms.
Now such conflicts (where both parties agree) are dealt with using methods of
resolution specifically tailored to JCIK. Due to the nature of the majority of the
incidents at JCIK, and the fact that staff often find both parties are causing harm to
one another, ‘mediation in conflicts’ is suggested as a more appropriate term. (excerpt)
