Recently added to the National Institute of Corrections website, you will find a new Topic page containing resources and materials on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Offenders.
This web page has been developed in an effort to provide current and useful information to correctional agencies regarding the safe and respectful management of lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) offenders. Relying on a best practices approach, this information will enable corrections staff to make better informed decisions about the safety, security, treatment and care of LGBTI offenders by providing academic, cultural and legal perspectives of the issues that make this group unique.
Look for future additions to this webpage on specific LGBTI topics for juveniles, legal and policy considerations, and medical and mental health.
