American Correctional Association Online Training
Are you prepared for the front line of corrections?
More than 470,000 correctional officers work in our nation's jails and prisons serving on the front lines. As the backbone of corrections, officers manage offenders 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week. Your facility depends on officers to maintain safety and security, support treatment programs, and manage offender behavior. This 12-course package covers the basic skills that every correctional officer needs to master.
Do you have what it takes to become an effective supervisor?
Once you are promoted to the level of supervisor, the "work" of the jail or prison flows through you. It is your job to have every post covered, to help your staff work as a team, and to ensure that your unit operates safely and efficiently. Staff will look toward you for leadership and motivation. This 8-course package covers the basic skills that every correctional supervisor needs to master.
Do your contractors and volunteers understand security policies?
Every correctional facility uses contractors, volunteers, and adjunct staff to augment services. Having knowledge of your facility's basic security policies is vital to ensuring tour facility's security. This 5-course package offers your managers a cost effective way to ensure that these team members are prepared to support the basic security operations within your facility.
Did you know that you can be held personally liable for violating an offender's rights?
Correctional agencies spend millions of dollar per year defending offender lawsuits. Despite losing their physical freedom upon entering the doors of jails of prisons, offenders still retain some of their constitutional rights. As the U.S. Supreme court has noted, "Prison walls do not form a barrier separating prison inmates from the protections of the Constitution." At issue are rights related to religion, speech, medical and mental health care, searches, due process, and access to the courts. This 5-course package covers the basic constitutional rights of offenders and how to avoid liability when a lawsuit is filed.
