By their very nature, operating a jail is filled with risk and litigation. Recent changes in the way the federal courts view use of force in jails and the expanding application of these principles is providing jail and risk managers an objective assessment of incidents before potential litigation. The best risk management technique is to avoid the problem. Along with the objective assessment, up for discussion will be changing jail culture to detect problems before they occur.
- Learn the new standard in deliberate indifference (officer use of force and inmate on inmate assaults)
- Understand the application of reasonable officer standard in jail incidents and operations
- Learn risk reduction through culture change (reentry and medically assisted treatment)
