Leadership - Leadership Phase 2 Part 1 This class is mandatory for those enrolled in the Tennessee Correctional Leadership Initiative.

Jail Administrators and staff have a tough job to do and a negative environment in which to do it. Their actions face ever increasing scrutiny by their departments, the courts, media, community, and special interest groups. The key to defusing much of this scrutiny is to help the staff perform their jobs better by assisting them in making better decisions and by providing them guidance in articulating the legal basis for those decisions.

The seminar is TCI approved and can be used as in-service training hours. This seminar is designed to further assist those law enforcement personnel that work predominately in correctional facilities. Law enforcement personnel that work in these conditions face additional exposure to potential damaging liability issues. This course will provide attendees with a better understanding of the issues facing today’s jails and provide them with tools to prevent possible liability issues.
