The landscape of corrections in regards to the use of force has been rapidly changing over the past few years and last several months.  This two-day seminar is designed to hone the skills of corrections managers, supervisors and line staff by reviewing best use of force practices in dealing with offenders with mental health issues, medical issues, and co-occurring disorders.  We will also be reviewing recent court decisions that impact our daily operations. 
Topics discussed include:
  • Qualified Immunity
  • Kingsley v. Hendrickson
  • Training Best Practices
  • De-escalation
  • Use of Force Policy Best Practices
  • Garrity Rights
  • Delirium Tremens
  • After Action Review Best Practices
  • Video Practices  
  • Defending Use of Force Incidents in Court
