Most jails have suicide prevention programs in place. Yet, inmates keep dying and suicide remains the leading cause of death in jail facilities. Part 2 of this series will cover key issues rarely talked about in relation to preventing inmates from killing themselves. These issues are essential to preventing in-custody suicide deaths and reducing the liability associated with them. 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. Attending Part 1 of this series is recommended, but not required.


This is part of a two-part series:
