Can I have NIC come in once a month for a year and conduct training?

NIC’s technical assistance is short-term assistance. We generally complete it in three days, provide the requestor with a report, and address the specific issues for assistance as requested in the letter. 

Can I train jail and prison pre-service custody employees together in the same basic academy?

Question: Our state is considering developing and offering a basic correctional officer academy for both jail and prison new custody employees. What should we be aware of as we proceed? Is there a difference in training jail versus prison officers?
