Police and Prison cell Cleaning
Police custody cells, vehicles, prison cells and communal toilet in prisons are some environments where bodily discharges and unhygienic behaviours creates a breeding ground for spread of germs and diseases if left unattended. They are areas subject to entry and exit of multiple persons and in difficult circumstances which needs proper decontamination and sanitation to restore back to a clean and sterile environment safe for both officers and detainees alike. There are a multitude of scenarios where there is a breach of the condition of areas like prison or police custody cells, vehicles or communal toilets, some of which are listed below:
- The aftermath of an arrest by aggression or resistance
- Detention of unhygienic persons or those carrying mites, flees, ticks etc.
- Violence between inmates resulting in homicide or injury
- Detention of intoxicated or unconscious persons, onsite and in law enforcement vehicles
- Suicide in custody
- ‘Dirty protests’; intentional spread of bodily fluids, urinating or defecating in unauthorized areas
While law enforcement officers have the responsibility of maintaining the safety and physical well-being of persons in custody, they are constantly dealing with people who are under extremely emotional or stressful mental conditions. This results in behaviours that are unexpected during custody and often results in creation of an highly unhygienic and unhealthy environment when they protest by smearing bodily fluids, urine, faeces, vomit etc. This is risky for not only those inmates, but also for the officers and other inmates in that site or facility.
