Background Information

Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc. is please to announce the publication of Sing Sing State Prison: One Day, One Lifetime, ISBN-10: 0-8059-7290-0, paperback, Publication Date: January 30, 2007. Sing Sing State Prison: One Day, One Lifetime, written by Author; Al Bermudez Pereira a Florida resident originally from Brooklyn, NY, by way of Vieques, PR., offers a fascinating, inside view of one of the hardest penitentiaries in the country. Sing Sing, located in Ossining, New York, has housed many of the most vicious and infamous criminals since its inception. As a Correction Officer at Sing Sing, the author provides the reader with information heretofore shielded from the public eye. Written in a conversational, narrative tone, Mr. Bermudez conveys chilling stories on violent criminals bent on destruction, an educational history of the prison, the psychological and emotional toll of working in such an environment has taken and the relationships he has forged over the years. In graphic detail, Mr. Bermudez describes the mental exercises he must subject himself to prepare himself each day to report for work. The author effectively conveys the level of bravery and professionalism required for those who lock the gates behind them as they are charged with the responsibility of vigilantly keeping watch over men with severe antisocial and criminally diseased minds. The text flows at a brisk pace, which keeps the readers interest throughout. By interspersing personal experiences, the author further build bond with the reader. The subject matter is unique and presented in a matter of fact and captivating fashion. Compelling photographs augment the text allowing the reader an even better insight to the environment of which the author writes. Mr. Al Bermudez Pereira, attention to detail and highly descriptive writing style could further enhance the appeal of this work, E. H. House, Managing Director, PA. Publishing Company 2006. Al Bermudez informs the readers, in a way that only a person who has experienced prison life can, about the inner workings of the prison system and gives insight in to our justice system. He explains the great amounts of corruption and possible solutions. (Dorrance Publishing, 2006.) It gives the readers a personal view and opinion on the death penalty and why growing up in the Marcy Housing Projects of Brooklyn, NY, helped him to clearly understand the criminal justice flaws marked by its discrimination. Detail explanation in departmental policies and procedures make this an ideal book for those seeking a career in Law Enforcement, particularly with any Department of Corrections in every level of government.

Additional Information

In a statement by Al Bermudez and soon to be published by MetroWest and City of Lakes Lifestyle Magazines Fathers Day issue of June 2007, here is what he had to say concerning his parental influences through prison; "During my years as a NYS. Correction Officer, I had many sit downs and held endless conversations with young people incarcerated within the prison walls of Sing Sing Maximum Security Prison, with some serving 10 to 100 years in prison. In their own words, many blamed their unfortunate circumstances on the absences of parents, single parents working long hour days and no supervision, homes without Father's and in some cases Father's who were home yet they experienced the absence of love. Some blamed it on alcohol and/or drugs, peer pressure of others, physical, verbal and mental abuse by friends and family members. I've discovered through these conversations that many of these incarcerated young people really don't mine discipline deep down inside. It actually gives them a sense of security, a firm foundation of personal strength and integrity. It also reinstates and instills in their minds the understanding that you are the parent, the guardian and one who is in control of their life. As a Correction Officer we must draw the line between interpersonal communications and the act of sentiment, we must, or your career won't go beyond your twenty years. Yet as a Parent, I couldn't help but to absorb these unfortunate stories and positively implement them in my own personal life. But always remembering that no matter how hard we try or how much we could give, we can't save everyone from life's evil and shameless temptations. I don't consider myself an excellent Father, actually I'm probably far from it when compared with many other Fathers. But by simply listening, understanding and implementing what I've learned positively, in addition to putting aside all the bad and negative elements found in a prison environment, I guess it's safe to say prison actually helped me to prefect those imperfections I didn't know existed within me as a parent*
