The descriptive type of cross sectional study was carried out among the 35 prisoners taking purposively from ‘Tangail District Jail’ of Bangladesh. Most of the respondents (82.86%) were male and (34.2%) between 26 to 30 years of age while 82.9% were married and 11.4% were Rickshaw puller, Driver and Farmer with 1200BDT to 5000BDT monthly income (62.9%). Among the prisoners 20.0% were related with theft, 22.9% with drug, 11.4% with robbery and 8.6% with murder, dacoits and hijacking while most of them (77.1%) were satisfied over the prison where 62.9% met with relatives within 7 days and 8.6% were bound to give bribe for meeting with family. It was also found 28% respondents were the victim of torture in the jail and there is a relationship between satisfactions on prisoner and recidivism. The study was recommended to take a collaborative action to all the stakeholders for the improvement of prison system ensuring human rights and security to reform the prisoners which may contribute to reduce recidivism and crime in the society.
