This workshop is directed towards correctional administrators and team leaders. 


Agencies, cell extraction programs, corrections tactical teams: no matter how big or small, unfortunately all operate inside their own bubble at all times. This bubble can open your agency to significant risk. Not only is it important to be aware of what the national standard is on a particular tactic or piece of equipment, but how it is being utilized in similar agencies. Our challenge to you is to get outside your bubble. 

Best practice and national standard assessments, either developed by yourself or conducted by an outside entity, can be invaluable. 

These assessments are intended to provide agencies the necessary verification and protection from litigation for tactical programs in today's world, and to identify strengths in performance as well as areas of concern. 

The goal of such reviews is to to enhance the capability and professionalism of the agency and its tactical teams.
