Section Information for Fall 2017
In correctional facilities, offenders are being held in secure confinement by correctional officers. Many facilities are overcrowded and inmates outnumber staff. Correctional staff, sworn (officers) and non-sworn (civilians) must develop effective methods to manage the offender population with critical emphasis on the following: security, safety of the public, safety of all staff, and safety of offenders (including self-harm). This must be accomplished in ways that avoid liability. This course will discuss ways that trained correctional staffs effectively and humanely manage offender populations inside various correctional facilities.
