This workshop provides participants with best business practices that are supported through research, evidence and case law in implementing an Objective Jail Classification process.  The workshop will begin with a basic overview of the fundamentals of OJC and will advance into housing plans for special populations, needs assessments, reclassification of offenders, disciplinary infractions, keep separates, gangs, protective custody, programming, re-entry and sustainability of an implemented Objective Jail Classification process.  The workshop will guide participants in the development of policies, procedures, and data collection relevant to classification, reclassification, and housing plans.  The workshop will identify stakeholders that can provide funding, leadership, training, and programs to support a progressive approach to mitigating risk.  Attendees will be provided a case study to classify, house, re-classify, and provide programs and re-entry services during this 3-day workshop.


At the end of this course, participants will:
  • Understand the correlation between identifying risk and need with reducing liability
  • Identify valid criteria to assess risk
  • Understand the components of an Inmate Behavior Management process
  • Correlate the need of data collecting relevant to an inmate housing plan
  • Develop an action plan through an agency self-evaluation
