Jail Administration

NOTE: This event has been postponed. The new dates will be posted when available.
Completed on Jan. 01, 1900--Jail administrators have significant responsibility and liability in ensuring that jail operations are conducted safely, securely, legally, and humanely. This 36-hour program focuses on the basic skills and competencies jail administrators need to effectively meet this responsibility.


This program covers ten key elements in jail administration:

  1. Managing risk
  2. Using jail standards to establish and assess operations
  3. Developing and assessing policy and procedure
  4. Determining staffing needs
  5. Managing the workforce
  6. Managing inmate behavior
  7. Managing the budget
  8. Developing a fire, safety, and sanitation plan
  9. Assessing operations
  10. Working with key stakeholders external to the jail


Only the top-level administrator of jails with fewer than 1,000 beds may apply. If space allows, teams composed of the jail administrator and the agency’s chief executive officer, such as the sheriff, will be considered for acceptance.
