          "Games Criminals Play" I believe is the title of a book I read years back that was a great tool for me.
          The con who is responsible for the "Downing of a Duck" link above has also written books that show it form the other side

            I attended two "Gang Awareness Seminars" a few years ago that were put on by the United Way Foundation of Sullivan County and several local law enforcement agencies. Might want to check and see if your area has something similar... not specific to Corrections, but VERY informative and helpful regardless.

            I second FormerTeacher's suggestion - it's a great book.

            Iowa - thanks for posting that... it's an eye-opener!

              In a typical in-service training year (40 hrs mandatory) we will have a legal update, cpr/ first aid, officer survival, gangs and security threats, mental illness in corrections, defensive tactics, knife defense, PPCT tactics, and a day where we wear our gear and a helmet and run through several scenarios with actors. Some end up in a use of force while others you may be able to defuse verbally. We also do a day where we interact with the community in uniform; we can choose between an elementary school, rec center, animal shelter, or cleanup project. It is kinda nice to interact with the public and remind them of our existence ;0)

              As part of our CIRT team, I also do an additional 40+ hours of annual firearms, cell entry, riot control, and less lethal weapons training.

              Scenario based training that is specific to corrections has been very valuable to the average officer in my agency. We run them through all types of situations and dissect it all afterwards so everyone can improve the way they handle themselves when shizz gets 'real'.

                  I recommend reading Verbal Judo. It will help improve IPC skills. IPC skills are probably the most fundamental tool we have.
