According to articles that I’ve studied, I would most certainly say that the Jamaican Correctional Facilities are very stern in how they are operated. Although there is an excessive issue with overcrowding, they continue striving to keep order and make it their due diligence to not only correct the behaviors of the inmates but make sure each inmate has what they need.
