“Shame in Detention: A Case for Sexual Harassment”: an illuminating critique of various aspects of the American criminal justice system. “Shame in Detention: A Case for Sexual Harassment” is the creation of published author Bill Pardue, a forensic behavioral psychologist with extensive experience in all facets of the criminal justice system. He is an expert witness in detention protocol, forensics counseling, life care, sexual harassment, and the Prison Rape Elimination Act. In 1997, Bill formed Detention Liability Mitigation Training Institute LLC (DLMTI) and served as CEO and medical administrator. In 2008, he formed and became director of the National Jail Litigation Mitigation Project.

Bill shares, “Detention is the fastest growing industry in the world. From elected government officials and their oversight specialist, down to and including the most basic support staff in correctional facilities, there is a need for all involved to be mindful that they are in a service paid for by taxpayers to protect a citizenry they may never meet. For one to allow their actions to bring shame on the profession is totally unwarranted. To take a position that there is any difference between a male and a female staff member is astonishingly ridiculous. Our goal is to train staff, not to be drawn into situations and to stand up to misdirected leadership. If detention happened to be an apple tree for attorneys to pick their successful career cases from, it would be the lowest hanging branch. Look up, point up, and stand up. Know it, see it, and act on it. Have a blessed day.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Bill Pardue’s new book is a thought-provoking critique of correctional institutions in the United States.
