Board of Correction Aims to Replace Solitary Confinement in New York City

The city’s Board of Correction (BOC) is unveiling a proposal that the de Blasio administration says would finally end solitary confinement in New York City jails.

The proposal, which will be announced at the BOC’s public meeting March 9, calls to end solitary confinement by November 1 and replace it with a so-called Risk Management Accountability Plan, which would allow for at least 10 hours per day outside of a cell, five hours of “daily programming,” access to case management services, individualized behavioral support plans, and occasional reviews by a multidisciplinary team, according to a joint announcement by the mayor and the BOC.
