NIC Releases New Publication

On May 17, 2018, the Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress, in collaboration with the National Institute of Corrections, hosted a panel discussion on the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) on veterans and how to support those who have run afoul of the law by providing appropriate treatment. View the event.

NIC also released its new publication “Barracks Behind Bars: In Veteran-Specific Housing Units, Veterans Help Veterans Help Themselves.” Barracks Behind Bars is a series of vignettes, stories, and experiences of pragmatic corrections professionals who have taken the initiative to design/develop, implement, and create sustainable veteran-specific programming in jails. This white paper shares the views of jail administrators, judges, and formerly incarcerated veterans—each of whom have stories to tell—in their own words. Read the publication, “Barracks Behind Bars”.

National Center For Jail Operations

The National Center For Jail Operations, a division of the NSA Global Center for Public Safety, was formed in 2011 at the request of sheriffs across the United States. Recognizing that jails are one of the most litigious and largest liability concerns a sheriff faces, and the fact that sheriffs operate over 85% of the jails in the United States, it makes sense that the National Sheriffs’ Association focuses its efforts on providing leadership, resources and training for jails.

Implementing Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Programs in Jails [WEBINAR]

Middlesex County, Massachusetts did not let failure stop them when tackling opioid addiction issues. They learned from what did not work in the first design of their MATADOR (Medication Assisted Treatment and Directed Opioid Recovery) Program to reboot, improve services, and achieve promising results.  The program employs a unique opioid and heroin addiction treatment model that deploys the use of an injectable form of a non-habit forming, long lasting medication that blocks the effects of opioids. Medication is combined with counseling /programming to address the substance abuse issues. Sheriff Koutoujian defines the success of the program by a person that is in compliance with counseling and programs.

Presenter: Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian, Middlesex County, MA
