Few things in the correctional environment are more important than the control of keys and tools. While tools provide a ready-made source for weapons, keys provide the means for someone to escape, harm others, and move about the facility undetected and in security sensitive areas. Therefore, it is imperative that correctional staff in adult jails and prisons follow procedures for accounting, issuing, and tracking keys and tools to ensure that they remain under the control of correctional staff.
