and a Constiutional Review of PREA"
Tuition: $375/NSA members; $425/Non-members. NSA Jail CJS/CJE Certification hours: 24
Content: Despite the limited and, generally, indirect connection between administers and individual prisoners, when a prisoner dies as a result of prisoner-on-prisoner assault, self-inflicted harm, an accidental injury, a medical problem, or other cause the first name listed among the defendants in litigation is generally that of the chief executive (i.e., sheriff, jail commander, director of corrections, warden). Being named as a defendant does not, however, mean the defendant is culpable. This three day seminar will provide in-depth review of In Custody Deaths and will present a three stage approach to what Sheriffs and Jail Administrators need to know to further protect themselves and the facility from litigation. It will emphasize skills in teaching first responders social and emotional management skills as well as conducting investigations. Seminar topics include:
• In-Custody Death first response and investigation
• Developing policy and procedure that anticipates and prepares for " Investigation to Litigation"
• Issues involving first responders being exposed to the threat and use of lethal force
• The importance of critical incident debriefing, legal assistance and advisors
• Practical and scientific approaches for administrators to understand the importance of " Psychological First Aid" for first
• PREA: A Constitutional Review of the DOJ Standards and what do they mean for Sheriff's and Jail Administrators. There is much confusion about whether or not compliance to the DOJ PREA standards is required for jails. Get straight facts.
