Rikers Fight Club: New Law a Response to Jail Violence
Under the bill, Correction officials will have to post statistics to its website on the number of teen inmates in the system, and numbers on various types of violent incidents.
Those include stabbings, slashings, fights, uses of force by guards, serious injuries, concussions, internal injuries, suicides, and sexual assaults.
The bill follows calls for better transparency in the DOC's care of teen inmates. Robinson was beaten to death in the Robert N. Davoren Center last October by a gang of inmates.
The law is supposed to take effect July 1.
