Course Objectives
Course Overview:

Administrative Investigation of Jail/Correction Officer Misconduct
Why Are We Getting Sued?

Course Objectives:
 
 
The foundation of the operations of a Jail/Correction facility depends on the Integrity, Honesty, Professionalism and the performance of the correction officer.
 
The public perception, “social capital” of the Jail/Correction facility is very fragile and the professionalism can easily be shattered by the improper actions and poor decisions of the supervisors and the jail/correction officer.
 
Protecting the reputation, reducing law suits, reducing com- plaints, reducing large losses, enhancing the professionalism of the Jail/Correction facility and the officers performance depends on the Administrative Investigation/Disciplinary process. The four essential persons and elements protected by the Administrative Investigation process.
 
Aggrieved Inmate
Accused Jail/Correction Officer
Jail/Correction/Facility
Community Served
 
The aggrieved inmate believes s/he has been mistreated. They must be heard, listened to and treated with respect. The accused Jail/Correction officer must be treated with dignity and fairness. In all, except in extreme cases, the Jail/Correction officer will continue to be part of the Jail Staff. His or her rights must be vigorously protected.

The Jail/Correction facility reputation makes providing services that much easier. There must be reasonable services in place to identify and deal with Jail/Correction officers who commit acts of misconduct.
 
The Community served generally gets what it demands. If the community fails to react to jail corruption, official abuse of authority and neglect of jail/correction inmates the community receives that kind of Jail/Correction operations.
