Heat in U.S. Prisons and Jails
This white paper addresses three important but largely neglected questions: • How will increased temperatures and heat waves caused by climate change affect prisons, jails, and their staff and inmate populations? • What can correctional departments do to prepare for greater heat and minimize the dangers it poses? • What are the legal implications of excessive heat in prisons and jails?
