WEBINAR: Analyze Jail Facilities and Operations to Improve Staffing Practices
June 11, 2014 @ 1:00 PM CDT - 2:00 PM CDT
Analyze Jail Facilities and Operations to Improve Staffing Practices
You may not realize it, but changing how things are accomplished in your jail may have a big impact on staffing needs, demands and budgeting. For example, can adjusting the time your jail serves breakfast help to reduce overtime in your jail? By analyzing the practices, policies and procedures that your jail uses every day, you may realize there is a better way. Join Rod Miller, Jail Staffing Expert, for a live webinar that will take you through the first steps in the staffing analysis process. He’ll show you and your team how to challenge all elements of your jail’s operations, including what is done, how it is accomplished, where it happens, when, and even “if” it should be done.
In this webcast, you will learn:
- Examples of how operational efficiencies have made staffing practices more efficient and more effective in other jails
- How facility design and conditions affect staffing needs—and what you can do about it
- Techniques for analyzing hour-to-hour activity levels
- How to use new tools to illustrate current activity levels and to model potential changes
- Links to information and tools will help you get started analyzing your jail procedures and practices
“This is the fun part of the staffing process– subjecting everything to critical and creative review.”
-Rod Miller, Jail Staffing Expert
Who Should Attend?
- Detention and corrections administrators and managers
- County commissioners and others who have a stake in jail operations and funding
- Contract service providers
- Employee unions, representatives, bargain entities
- Persons involved with scheduling employees
- Persons involved with budgeting
