Corrections workforces must be united in both the way they present themselves and their internal dynamics. Breakdowns in communication or teamwork can put officers at risk. Supervisors must create a highly accountable workplace culture and address any problems as soon as they arise.

Presenting a cohesive front and handling personnel issues quickly, effectively and properly can strengthen correctional performance. Failure to follow these productive steps may create divisions and fractures, putting officers in danger.

Correctional facilities can use public safety workforce management software to maintain easily accessible information about personnel schedules and workplace assignments in real-time. By allowing personnel to quickly access information about who is working, where they are working, and in what role, transparency is increased. Creating visibility and openness among correctional personnel allows leaders to better plan the daily operations of their teams, anticipate conflicts, and devise resolutions.

Thanks for watching. Come back soon for more information on how technology is being used to improve correctional workforce efficiencies.
