A couple of things, first it would help if, when the keys are turned in by inmates place them on a numbered board and have your supervisors inventory those keys at either the begining or end of each shift. Second, if the inmate loses the key, then there should be a policy in place to charge the inmate a certain amount of money to cover the cost of the key. Finally, if staff is not turning their key in at the end of their shift, it sounds like a perfomance inssue and should be dealt with accordingly.

We are having a problem keeping up with inmate cell keys. At our institution i/m’s have their own or them and their cellies have a cell inwhich they have their own key to get in and out. We, officers and supervisors also have a master key to get in these cells should we need. Our problem is: a)officers forget to turn in key to dorm officers when i/m’s property is packed and he is taken to adseg b)i/m loses key c)or dorm officer misplaces key. Also key inventory and cell inspection forms are not properly completed and/or not completed making it hard to keep track of key. Finaly, keys have been kept in small manilla envelops with cell number written on the envelope and placed in a metal index card box and placed in officers desk drawer. I would greatly appreciate any advise that will remedy this headache.
