Doug Dretke, deputy director of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice's institutional division, said problems identified in the review are being addressed, including steps to "enhance our identification process."
After luring Sgt.
Dretke said Tuesday that, based on the review, "we are adding a very specific procedure to help ensure positive identification."Correctional officers at checkpoints, he said, will be required to physically examine identification cards, and the person seeking to pass will be required to remove hats and sunglasses "to facilitate the identification process."
Dretke said that a work group was looking at how vehicle keys could be kept out of the hands of inmates, perhaps by prohibiting prison staff from carrying personal vehicle keys beyond the central control checkpoint.
Prison officials said that no decision had been made as to whether correctional officers involved in the incident would face disciplinary action.
"In our craft shops, we have a very specific policy that when offenders exit, they will be fully and thoroughly strip-searched," Dretke said."And obviously that didn't occur."
The review also took issue with Hurt's decision to conduct the search for contraband with Roland present, "not standard practice."It cited a training document that states: "Officers should not allow themselves to be 'deceived' by an offender in a search situation by allowing the offender to distract them."
The investigation found evidence that Roland's escape was not a spur-of-the-moment act.

Douglas Dretke, executive director for the Criminal Justice Center's Correctional Management Institute of Texas (CMIT), brings a special insight to the position he officially took over July, 2006.
The 26-year veteran of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and SHSU alumnus has first-hand knowledge of the agency, one with which CMIT works closely, as well as a knowledge of the clientele's perspective on the kind of resources CMIT provides.
During his tenure with TDCJ, Dretke built strong working relationships with those state and national leaders. His life-long field experience gives him insight on the issues and challenges corrections leaders are facing today.
Dretke rose from the bottom of the ranks at TDCJ, starting out as a correctional officer for a year before moving up to assistant warden at both the Eastham and Hughes Units to senior warden at the Holliday and Pack Units and eventually to director for the Correctional Institutions division.
Dretke earned his bachelor's degree from SHSU in criminology and corrections in 1980 and his Master of Public Administration with a criminal justice concentration from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in 2001. Over the years he has become a highly regarded presenter/facilitator, delivering a number of speeches nationwide on various criminal justice-related issues.
