Use of Force- Response to Inmate Aggression:
As Corrections Officers we face many challenges in dealing with the inmate population. Use of Force is utilized in our nations prisons and jails each day. It is our responsibility from the top down to insure the force we use is consistent with not only our own policies but current case law as well. This class will cover why “Use of Force” is one of the top two reasons Jails and Prisons face lawsuits around the nation and "Best Practices" we can train and implement to be successful defending these legal challenges.
Mental Health & Suicide Awareness: Reality is, the mental health care safety net has become one of incarceration. From coast to coast our jails/prisons have become the mental health hospitals in most of our communities.

This class will cover recommended approaches in dealing with these special populations.
