In an effort to provide affordable, trusted training for jails in the western states, WSSA and NIJO have joined forces to offer an advanced legal-based jail training program for WSSA members. To accommodate everyone, the seminars will be offered at locations across WSSA territories. All training is approved for National Certification through NIJO for NCCE, NCCS, and NCCO levels. WSSA and NIJO share common ground on defending the office of Sheriff and promoting a sheriff’s best interest on jail issues without regard to political correctness, affiliation or putting organization objectives before the members they serve.
Servant leadership is a leadership model meant to replace typical command and control models of leadership,common in law enforcement,to be more focused on the needs of others. In the detention/corrections setting,others can mean many things – community,staff,inmates,board of commissioners,taxpayers etc. In our role as professional detention and corrections officers we serve all of those entities. To really understand why it’s important to “serve” others you must first take a look at what being a good steward means.
