Inside a Federal Prison Facility

Courtney Bublé joins the podcast to discuss what she saw at FCI Cumberland.

As the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the U.S., prisons and jails were hit particularly hard. Not only were staff members getting sick, but the nature of incarceration meant that social distancing and mitigation efforts were ineffective. According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the agency is also facing a staffing shortage, putting extra pressure on the BOP.

GovExec’s Courtney Bublé recently visited FCI Cumberland, a federal facility in Maryland that houses more than one thousand people. She joined the podcast to discuss staffing at the Bureau of Prisons and her trip to FCI Cumberland.
