Seven years later we look back on this idea that I brought up in (Administrative Segregation for being a threat to the safety & security of officers & offenders & the institution) we looked at the inner core of hundreds of organizations, their rules, regulations, policies, at first this organization was very small, through the years we have made grave mistakes but have learned alot about corrections. Today we have a Board of Directors, staff and we have office divisions (homes) are being set up all over the State of Texas and the country, although, we are a young organization we have made a impact because we work hard, we are dedicated also because we have family inside the prisons not just in TDCJ but other states as well. We are funded by the public, generous donations, concerned citizens, families, friends of offenders, former officers, we do not get money from corporations we spend every dollars wisely it is recorded on our website for the world to see, we have nothing to hide, we are here to stay, we cannot be intimidated by any official & we do not ignore situations when it comes to someone life. We are becoming one of the country’s leading advocates for offenders, we offer free tools, hands on training, free organizational resources, networking opportunities unlike any organization in the country or even the world! we also have internship for individuals to start their training, we equip our staff with all our contacts, we meet with congress members, consultants to the federal government, judges, texas rangers , prison directors, wardens, lawyers, law students, organizational founders and so many other contact’s too many to mention here. We groom, mentor individuals & we place the value of “human life” at the top of our list, then innovation, action & the impact of being a leader & hard work it takes to be in a leadership position and above that working as a team with a team leader which rotates everyday, everyone becomes a leader in this organization, no one is left on the sidelines with NCOC, we bring together community leaders, our staff as a team to solve institutional problems. we have come a long way in seven years and will continue to assist the government in enforcing the Safe Prison initiative alongside with filing complaints disputing the accuracy of “Institutional Action Reports” filed with the United States Department of Justice and the federal funding the prison facilities are awarded for being in compliance with federal law. In closing this weekly letter you should take a look at our weekly status report on facebook, and do some research on institutional policy,and investigate the perpetrator, find the official employee roster in the prison your either interested in or have a problem with, filing complaints.is time consuming knowing what to say is the hardest, these 6 words will help you, as a investigator you are required to always be accurate, thorough, concise, you must also be so thorough not overlooking one key piece of evidence, which will be crucial to the district attorney or the internal affairs division, office of inspector general or the agency prosecuting the defendant. correcting mistakes takes time, time you and I do not have. ( We want your feedback )Respectfully Yours ,

An effective grievance program extends far beyond the staff of the grievance department. It involves an ongoing commitment by both staff and offenders at every facility to solve problems. The grievance program also provides a variety of supportive and protective functions by giving the offender an alternative to confrontation and an outlet for frustration and aggression. The program offers the offender a less formal alternative to litigation, thus saving taxpayers the cost of defending the agency in court. Grievances, when taken collectively, provide a wealth of insight into the daily operations of each unit that is helpful in maintaining a safe and secure environment for staff and offenders.
The current offender grievance process facilitates problem resolution at two distinct administrative levels. The first, commonly referred to as Step 1, allows the Warden to identify and resolve issues at the unit level. The second level, known as Step 2, affords an offender the opportunity to appeal the Warden’s decision. Step 2 grievances are sent off the unit to the Central Grievance Office in Huntsville, Texas for
review. Once the two-step process has been completed, the offender’s administrative remedies within TDCJ have been exhausted.
During Fiscal Year 2012 Texas offenders located in TDCJ units across the state filed a combined 216,258 Step 1 and Step 2 grievances, which represents an increase from the previous fiscal year. Approximately 26% of all Step 1 grievances were appealed to the second step, indicating that effective problem resolution is occurring at the unit level.

AUSTIN, Texas — Health care money for Texas’ 156,000 prison inmates will be cut by $75 million in the new fiscal year starting Sept. 1 under a slimmed-down $3.06 billion budget Texas corrections officials disclosed Friday.
The health care reductions account for the largest difference from the $3.12 billion budgeted for the nation’s second-largest prison system in the 2011 fiscal year.
Specifics of the overall prison agency budget, with money approved by the Texas Legislature in the recently concluded session where a state budget shortfall overshadowed nearly all lawmakers’ work, were revealed at the Texas Board of Criminal Justice meeting in Austin.
“We will have our work cut out for us in terms of developing levels of service, developing partnerships and rate structures so we can make these appropriation levels work,” Brad Livingston, executive director of the Department of Criminal Justice, told the board. “We received certainly a very loud and clear message, along with our partners, that there’s an expectation that we develop cost-savings mechanisms and partnerships and overall approaches to make this work.”
Health care at more than 100 prisons has been the responsibility of the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center for nearly two decades under contracts with the prison system. UTMB accounts for about 80 percent of the care, and officials there and at Texas Tech have said they provide the care at a deficit.
“The expectations on the part of everybody is that we develop a system, a partnership, and tighten those partnerships we have to make the funding levels work,” Livingston said.
