Correctional officers are required to know the principles embodied in the United States Constitution, understand complex case law interpreting constitutional provisions, and exercise sound decision-making with limited facts—often in seconds. These split-second decisions will be scrutinized by department leadership and boards, funding sources, the public and, in many cases, the courts.
Many jails lack sound policies that can help correctional officers navigate these decisions. The result? Lawsuits and personnel grievances, situations that turn violent and incidents that ruin the reputation of jail administrators. Join Lexipol to learn what policy areas pose the most risk to correctional facilities and how policies built on national best practices and state/federal laws can help eliminate these hidden risks.
