Jails and Prisons

Providing Centralized Solutions for Correctional Officer Management

Corrections facilities include prisons and jails. Prisons are state or federal housing facilities that confine convicted felons typically sentenced one year or more.  They may or may not be multi-facility campuses. Jails, on the other hands, are administered by local police or sheriff's departments.  Their convicted inmates and those awaiting trial typically have shorter sentences — usually for 1 year or less.

Undoubtedly, the profession by its very nature, presents challenges to its workforce physically and mentally. Insufficient staffing, limited budgets, and inmate overcrowding have taken a heavy toll on the correctional workforce. Despite these concerns, administrators must run secure facilities that keep the incarcerated and their workforce safe. 

What can correctional leaders do to support their officers and staff?
