A corrections agency is only as effective and professional as the people it hires. To maintain excellence, both corrections line officers and supervisors must maintain a high degree of professionalism. This requires high ethical standards, active supervision, mentoring and high-quality training to help maintain a safe working environment and reduce liability.  

Join Lexipol for a discussion with Lieutenant (Ret.) Gary Cornelius on active steps you can take to maintain officer morale while providing quality supervision of inmates and enhancing the careers of correctional staff. 

You’ll learn:  

  • Traits of a good corrections officer.

  • The importance of effective stress management and its effects on staff morale.

  • The pitfalls of negative behaviors that can lead to rogue staff.

  • How transformational leadership, supervision and mentoring can inspire, motivate and empower line staff.
