    Despite using multiple strategies to prevent inmates from killing themselves, suicide is still the leading cause of death in jails. Tweaks and adjustments to current suicide prevention practices are needed in most rural and urban jails across the country. This webinar will focus on modifying 8 current strategies most jails are using–in order to better avoid tragic deaths and large lawsuits. The presenter is a jail suicide expert who is regularly involved with lawsuits related to suicide deaths in corrections. Audience participation and lessons learned from suicide litigation will be highlighted.
