Federal Employee Video Testimony

Routinely the DOJ and US Attorneys Office will subpoena Federal employees to testify in cases outside of the employee's geographical work area.

These cases can often be cross country in nature as currently my office on the West Coast is working to find funding to send an employee to the East Coast for under one hour of general background testimony.

A cross country flight and hotel for less than one hour of general testimony.... more »

Coffee cups, calendars, key chains, pens, challenge coins, you name it and the only thing in common is the sticker on the bottom; Made in China.

Consolidate DHS Seized Property Operations

Currently; Border Patrol, CBP, FPS, ICE, TSA and the US Coast Guard have their own facilities, policy, processes, and specialist personnel to handle seized property and contraband.

By consolidating all of these facilities and processes into one DHS seized property system, cost savings and efficiency will occur.

Why does ICE need a seized property vault in the same geographical location as CBP?

Consolidate these facilities... more »

Consolidation of CBP and TSA Bonded Facility and Cargo Operation

Prior to the creation of the DHS, the former US Customs Service was the primary entity for inspecting inbound and outbound foreign cargo at US International airports as well as compliance and control of related bonded facilities.

The events of September 11, 2001 resulted in the creation of DHS as well as the TSA with the consolidation of the Customs Service into CBP. Since 2001 the TSA has grown and expanded in mission... more »

Use employee input on design of new prisons

I have been to three "new" penitentiaries which were built at different times over approximately 12 years and all three have the same issues. There needs to be true staff involvement prior to AND during the building process. It would be much cheaper to fix the problems PRIOR to the construction instead of fixing after the construction.

NO GS-13 FOR BOP Dept. heads at USP's.

Department heads at all BOP US Penitentiary's are automatically given at GS13 pay status, just for simply working at a USP. No one else received this incentive, why should they. If they don't want to work there for the normal GS12 pay, then have them quit, or transfer. Particularly the HRM and business office dept heads. Eliminating this pay discrimination will save the BOP over $150,000 per year minimum.

Biometric Finger Print

Currently inmates enter into any dining facility and there is no official way to ensure that each and every inmate only eat one time per meal. Staff watch the lines to ensure that inmates do not get back in line but one can ever be 100% sure if the inmate ate during that meal or not. My suggestion is to have biometric finger print scanners put into place at every institution within the Federal Bureau of Prisons. If the... more »

Indoor Power Farm

I am a correctional officer, within a medium security prison. My idea is to create a Unicor based business, to use stationary bicycles that produce electricity when used. This is a Unicor "Power Plant" which is run using inmates that ride these bicycles. There would be 2 inmate shifts that would trade off throughout the day. The bikes would have to be connected to the power grid and the power produced would either... more »
