Event Details

The National Sheriffs' Association Institute for Jail Operations invites you to participate in the 2013 National Symposium on Jail Operations 


8:00 am - 10:00 am Registration and Exhibit Hall Open


10:00am - 12:00pm - Use of Force

Use of force is one of the top five prisoner-filed litigation suits yet few jail and correction officials know what the courts have to say about use of force in jails. The vast majority of jails across the United States employ policy, procedure and training on use of force that is a derivative of the objective reasonableness test. This workshop will explain the difference between the application and justification of use of force in jails and how to proactively address issues to defend against litigation.

 

12:30pm - 2:30pm - First Amendment/ Legal Issues

This workshop provides a review of First Amendment issues for jails, including speech (inmate communication: mail) and religion using the four factors outlined in Turner v. Safley to provide guidelines for administrative discretion for having defensible policy and procedure.

 

2:45pm - 4:45pm - Emergency and Contingency Planning

Jails must plan and prepare for a variety of emergencies. This seminar reviews issues jail and corrections officials face from disease to catastrophe. Learn proactive strategies to prepare for the unexpected and the unwanted.

 

5:00pm - 6:00pm - Not So "Best Practices" - Legal-based vs. Best Practices

What is the difference between legal-based guidelines and the philosophy-based standards so often referred to as "best practices" in jails? For jails that are looking at policy and procedure, this seminar will explain what the federal courts have ruled and what federal statutes require with respect to incarcerating prisoners instead of a one-size-fits-all standard for all jails.

 

This seminar is being offered FREE of charge to any jail or corrections staff. Seats are limited and on a first come first serve basis! Register early!

Organizer

The National Sheriffs' Association Institute for Jail Operations

The Institute for Jail Operations is a division of the National Sheriffs' Association's Center for Public Safety, was formed in 2011 at the request of jail staff across the United States. Recognizing that jails are one of the most litigious and largest liability concerns jail employees faces today. The National Sheriffs' Association focuses its efforts on providing leadership, resources and training for jails across the country.
 
The National Sheriffs’ Association is committed to providing the best resources available to make jails safer, more secure and protect against liability and adverse publicity.
 
We encourage jail administrators and staff to utilize the resources found within the website as well as those services made available to registered members, such as the jail seminars, articles written by the foremost corrections experts, online training, model policy and the legal-based jail guidelines.
