From the official release of the Prison Rape Elimination Act standards by the Department of Justice to the recent Supreme Court Florence strip search decision, Sheriffs and Jail Administrators all over the country are deciphering what is required of them in the wake – particularly how those changes will affect policy, procedure and training. This seminar will provide an overview of the hottest topics jail administrators’ face, along with updates involving trends in litigation. Prisoners file more litigation than any other group in the United States. How can Sheriffs and jail administrators proactively protect against prisoner litigation? This workshop provides a comprehensive discussion of all aspects of risk management and civil liability protection. They will also be provided with a systematic plan of action to counter and diminish vulnerability to prisoner litigation.
