Service Description

Correctional officers have an important responsibility in maintaining safe custody of all inmates in their care. The policies and procedures officers follow are in place to ensure services to inmates meet rights established by the courts. Inmates have limited rights, and if correctional officers knowingly violate established policies and violate an inmate’s rights, the correctional facility could be found liable in a civil action. If a Correctional Officer engages in deliberately violating inmates’ rights, purposely ignoring policies, procedures, or instructions from supervisors, and takes no action to prevent mistreatment of inmates, the agency will not protect them. This course outlines an inmate’s rights as established by case law and statute, as well as the measures staff, can take to ensure they are acting in accordance with established policy and procedures helping keep their organization from being held liable in a suit against them.
