I am looking for a good video on preventing inmate manipulation. Can't find a DVD/ Video. Can only find articles. Does anyone know where I can find a Good DVD?
Lockup USA has a starter level video/DVD called "Being Aware of the Con Game." It is a pretty good basic introduction.
AIMS Multimedia in CA (1-800-367-3467) had a good video enititled "Con Games Inmates Play". Although it has some age on it, it is quite good - it is based on the book "Games Crimanals Play" by Bud Alled and Diana Bosta. Although they give credit to Bud in the film, he did know know about it until I told him. LOL
I would be interested in this video, too. I have the Lockup USA video, but am looking for something more specific. I teach a basic class, but want more than a summary of the class. What does the AIMS video entail? Any more suggestions? Thanks for the help!
There is also a great article called, "The Sting, Anatomy of a Setup" that was in the September/October 1999 issue of Corrections Technology and Management. The magazine is no longer in print and I only have a hard copy of the article. I would be happy to provide it to you if you would like.
