This is the second of a two-part webinar that addresses a major problem in corrections, specifically the manipulation of correctional staff by criminal offenders. All correctional staff, including juvenile and adult institutions, and community corrections (probation and parole), are targets for the offender manipulator. Also targeted are people who try to help offenders and staff programs, mental health, substance abuse, volunteers, chaplain’s staff, medical, food service, and maintenance.

This webinar is designed to get staff thinking about who they are dealing with, and how manipulation can destroy professional lives, careers, and the public trust. Training correctional staff, both sworn and non-sworn is essential.

During Part II:  Offender Manipulation:  Safeguarding Your Staff, we will discuss:

  • The Importance of staff training in maintaining security and public safety
  • Recommended methods of training: Getting staff’s attention
  • A Tool for Trainers: ‘The CHUMPS Approach’

The American Jail Association (AJA) is a national, nonprofit organization that supports the professionals who operate our Nation’s jails. It is the only national association that focuses exclusively on issues specific to the operations of local correctional facilities. The driving force behind the phenomenal growth of AJA is its members. AJA has taken a leadership role in developing the type of programs that promote the professional growth of the dedicated men and women who operate our Nation’s jails.  Jail staff have the responsibility for the management of people who have been charged with violating our laws and often mock the ideals on which AJA was founded. Jail personnel find themselves sorely tested each day in the jail environment when they receive scorn and derision for their loyalty and perseverance under extremely trying circumstances.  AJA takes this opportunity to salute the jail staff of the Nation who, by their dedication to the difficult task of local corrections, have made a vital, positive difference to the welfare of the communities they serve.  Click here to learn more about AJA.
