This month, NIC encourages everyone to unite in reflecting on mutual respect, standing up for individual and collective rights, and supporting human rights. Consider how your time can be invested in improving your local corrections community.
Examining Disparity in Prison Classification Systems
In collaboration with the MDOC and the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, NIC will make available findings from a study intended to identify the racial and ethnic disparities found in classification systems.
NIC offers online e-courses that are available at your convenience through the NIC Learn Center. We also offer in-person and Blended VILT (in-person and virtual) training throughout each year on specific courses.
NIC has a vast collection of publications produced by its own agency staff about almost every topic in corrections. This includes studies, guides, and evidence-based best practices for agencies of all levels of corrections. In addition, our website also points to many other resources on the internet that might be useful when learning about particular topics.
The mission of NIC is to advance public safety by shaping and enhancing correctional policies and practices through leadership, learning, and innovation.
Who does NIC serve?
NIC is dedicated to providing specialized and direct corrections training and resources to line staff, administration, and researchers in tribal, local, state, and federal corrections agencies. NIC does not serve non-governmental corrections organizations (such as private prisons and non-profit programs).
