Here are some of the comments by the DOC Security Staff personnel who attended
our training classes:
Many questions and concerns were cleared up. We need this program in our “Basic Skills” class.
I came to the class with a closed mind, thinking it would be a forced perspective. I was wrong. The openness and explanations were very helpful and can help us all in dealing with Muslim inmates.
Helped me to understand Islam. The program was good. The speakers were well prepared.
Now I know the meaning of some Arabic words that Muslim inmates use. I will not be offended.
We need Muslim volunteers to visit this institution on regular basis.
Learning about Muslim Beliefs was what I liked the most, would like to see more staff receive this training.
