Force options are different than force standards, but both are important. Correctional officers must be trained about Force Standards (Fourth, Eighth, and Fourteenth Amendments) so they know how their force will be evaluated in civil trials. Force options play a critical role in what force strategies are selected and used in each situation. John G. Peters, Jr., Ph.D. will explain the impact of the Unites States Supreme Court holding in Kingsley v. Hendrickson. Dr. Peters was the expert witness for the correctional deputies in the original trial and the second trial after the case was remanded by the Supreme Court.

John G. Peters, Jr., Ph.D., CTC., CLS serves as president, and chief learning officer of the Henderson, Nevada-based Institute for the Prevention of In-Custody Deaths, Inc.  A former law enforcement administrator, deputy sheriff, and police officer, Dr. Peters has been conducting law enforcement training across the globe since 1979.

Religious ministries have the potential to help jail staff, incarcerated people, and family members.  Too often, unfortunately, there is unintended friction between jail staff and religious volunteers.  This friction can interfere with the success of jail ministries.  By discussing key issues before the religious ministry begins, jail staff can decrease potential problems and increase benefits.

During this webinar, we will discuss:

  • The nature and extent of jail religious ministries.
  • Potential conflicts between jail staff and those working in religious ministries.
  • Specific jail ministry issues.
