Elevate Expertise in Corrections:
NIJO's Premier Training & Events

Training is usually one of the key factors a sheriff, corrections administrator or officer must be able to defend when something goes wrong.  Thus, training is a critical component to make jails operationally safe and secure.  While some states unfortunately do not require any jail training for staff whatsoever, the statutory keeper of the jail is certainly responsible in cases of deliberate indifference and liability to prove the staff is trained and aware of duties, responsibilities, policy and procedure within the jail.  Sadly, jail training in most areas of the country is hard to come by for most agencies. And in many cases, the content is not based on case law but rather on the experience of the presenter alone.  This poses potential issues in subjectivity and possible presenter biases that could result in weak liability defense.  To access the best jail training taught by experts in the field is usually costly because one agency can rarely justify the cost of travel.  The goal of the National Institute for Jail Operations is to connect your agency with the nation’s best jail experts and trainers on an affordable budget.
