Using Force with Inmates

Although most inmates generally follow the rules and comply with the requests of correctional officers, some refuse to cooperate or obey the rules, or they attack another inmate or correctional officer. It is your responsibility to manage the behavior of inmates - whether they are disruptive, out of control, or violent - while upholding their rights and adhering to agency policies. Force is used as a last resort when all other options have failed, unless there is an immediate danger to life. This course will examine the proper use of force in a correctional environment.
