Commissioner Louis Giorla (contd)

Whatever we can do to foster law abiding respectable respectful behavior we do. We know the hurdles, housing, employment, education. Wherever we can improve the outcomes that’s what we’re heading for. And there is an ulterior motive too, I’ve been here 32 years and jails can be a very volatile violent and brutal place at times. The more structured activity, the more hope that you give individuals, the better they interact with you. You have to keep your word too. If you tell them you’re going to do something, you’ve got to do it.
