Experts testify in suicide case 04/22/03 [cached]

Jim Garvey, who was a three-star chief when he retired in 1994 after 30 years with the New York City Department of Corrections, said he never had seen a jail or prison inmate commit suicide by hanging himself with a blanket or by hanging from a wall switch plate, which was the method Sisk used to kill himself.

Garvey called Sisk's cell a protrusion-free cell, which had a custom-made "flush-mounted plate."The cell, which didn't have hooks and had a very high ceiling, was made for suicidal inmates, Garvey said.
Having a corrections officer physically check on the inmate and talk to him is preferable to a video check, Garvey said.But the corrections department's policy on suicide prevention "takes into account everything from A to Z. I find no fault with that at all," he said.
