“If it’s not broke, why fix it?” Many of us may have this thought as it relates to Direct Supervision (DS) and Inmate Behavior Management (IBM). While the core tenants of each of these management strategies is solid, operationalizing them can be disjointed... especially if your jail has different physical plant designs and an organizational culture that does not currently support effective inmate management. This workshop introduces you to a unified operational philosophy: Strategic Inmate Management (SIM), which builds on the fundamental work of DS and IBM. SIM considers the impact of your organizational culture to promote a comprehensive approach to managing inmate behavior and to foster an organizational culture conducive to accomplishing organizational goals.
