The security plan is based on the fact that the institution is working on a stringent and anything expensive would be unfair and might seem unreasonable. The security plan is as a result of the increasing population at the institution. Its also facilitated by the fact that
Physical plant intrusion eg burglary
A watch tower should be raised above the MPSETC this will ensure that everything around the institution can be seen well. The street lighting should also be raised with the lighting focusing around the whole institution. Plant intrusion can most likely happen at night and that is why it is important to make sure that the education and training center is well lit and guarded at night. Mpsetc ought to employ more security officers to watch over this area from the proposed towers. Doing this will also be very cheap as it does not require any complex resources.

What creates a safe institution is adherence to a standardized set of policies and procedures, which hold inmates, correctional staff, their supervisors, and the prison administration accountable — not the use of long-term lockdowns.
The department now has a plan in place to transition NBCI back to operate as the state's most secure maximum security prison.
This means managing the needs of our officers, supporting supervisory staff, and providing inmates with the appropriate programs and services in a well-managed environment. We are slowly moving toward these goals without compromising the safety of our officers.
One of the aims of accreditation by the American Correctional Association (ACA) is to increase staff safety.
Since 2009, the Department's only two ACA Accredited prisons, Eastern Correctional Institution and Western Correctional Institution, which is also a maximum security facility, have seen just five serious assaults on staff between them.
Accreditation creates uniform policy and procedures, increases officer training, and allows for more effective third-party audits, building on the impressive work already accomplished by our Department since 2007.
