AP: Most Weapons Found in NYC Jails are Homemade, Report Shows

The majority of weapons found in ‪‎NYC jails‬ last year were inmate-made as found in a new report from the Board of Correction. However, the official view is at odds with this finding as there is a push to change city rules restricting inmate visits, which advocates are at odds with.

"This report calls into question the administration's focus on visitors as the source of weapons," said Jennifer Parish, Director of Criminal Justice Advocacy, at the Urban Justice Center's Mental Health Project.
