Direct Supervision: A Supervisor's Guide to Success

American Jail Association Logo

Co-Sponsored by NIC

True direct supervision requires a shift in the role of the supervisor from the typical role that occurs in a traditional--or containment-minded--jail. Making and maintaining this shift can often be difficult or ambiguous for supervisors endeavoring to be successful. The good news is it doesn’t need to be! There is a recipe for success. This workshop focuses on the vital role of supervisors in direct supervision jails; identifies key components of the supervisor’s role; facilitates discussion on strategies supervisors can employ to be successful; and provides an overview of the administration’s role and the housing officer’s role to assist supervisors in fulfilling their role.
