Public Safety Training and Consulting

Inmate classification is one of the highest areas of liability for any jail or lockup and jail lawsuits are on the rise in this state and across the nation. An effective, well-defined classification system along with properly trained classification staff will help reduce escapes and escape attempts, suicides and suicide attempts, and the number of inmate-on-inmate assaults in your facility. 

This training takes a closer look at the classification system and examines many issues that face jail classification officers every day, regardless of what software program is used in their jail.

Jail classification officers will gain a better understanding of the importance of classifying inmates, proper documentation, proper use of the override system and learn how to compile reliable and accurate data on inmates to make informed decisions in the classifying and housing of inmates. They will learn to use their available resources to make defendable decisions on separating, classifying and housing all different classes of inmates. 

This course features real life scenarios, videos and best practices that are based on decades of experience, case law and standards set by the Michigan Department of Corrections, in addition to standards set by the National Institute of Jail Operations (NIJO). 

Jail classification and having properly trained staff is an important part of operating any jail, large or small.  

The cost of this course is $250 per person. Class runs from 8 am to approximately 4:30 pm.
