Legal Issues / Following the Latest Trends and Developing Best Practices
The landscape of corrections in regard to the use of force has been rapidly changing over the past few years and last several months.  This two-day interactive training 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 focus on the latest developments in legal issues that impact our staff, offenders and facilities.  Best practices, recent case law, statutory requirements and operational strategies will be discussed.  Topics will include:
  • 42 USC 1983
  • Use of Force
