Seminar A 2: Communications Continuity – Public / Private Sector Partnerships

Catastrophic and large-scale incidents can disrupt normal communications between emergency command staff and responders. Even if the radio, cellular and data infrastructure remain intact, power and backhaul failures, or even increased traffic, will result in overloading and/or complete disruption of the communications network. Sprint's Emergency Response Team (ERT) provides responder organizations with a targeted, rapid deployment solution to this problem. With the ability to quickly deploy self-sustained, remote networks, Sprint's Emergency Response Team provides a complete communications continuity solution to sustain, augment, or replace burdened cellular, radio, and IP networks.


Come join Sprint in a discussion regarding ERT’s expertise, history and how Sprint’s Emergency Response Team can support your organization.

Presenter: Ryan McGill, Manager, Business Development, Sprint Emergency Response Team


Room: Canal B
Seminar A 3: PAWS (Pets Adopted Will Survive)

This program was established in 1997. It is collaboration with the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office and Metro Animal Control Center. This program is connected to a Batterer’s Intervention Program call SAVE (Sheriff’s Anti-Violence Effort). The program uses current offenders to help training, care for, and assist MACC with animals and increase the adoption rate for animals by the public. One part of the program is designed to work with the DCSO Career Development Tracks Program where those in our Apprenticeship Program build animal shelters for those who are adopted. DCSO has built dog houses, chicken coops, small and large outdoor shelter for animals, etc. Since the program began, the adoption rate for those animals who have participated in the program with offenders has been 100 percent.

Seminar B 3: Transition from Jail to Community (TJC) Initiative

The DCSO has been involved with the Transition from Jail to Community initiative for almost three years. During this time, the DCSO has changed its system to be more seamless in the approach in dealing with offenders who will be released. The TJC system change for the DCSO began with review of the classification and intake process. At this stage, a PROXY was introduced for all offenders classified to determine their risk level for reincarceration. Next, a needs assessment was developed and implemented for those offenders who scored a medium or high on the risk scale. This assessment is conducted keeping in mind the twelve core criminogenic factors associated for reincarceration.

3.45 – 4.45pm Workshop 5: Are You Ready for Next Generation 911


The current 911 system, on which the American public relies every day, is more than 40 years old. It has largely served both citizens and law enforcement well, but, simply put, the telephony system that supports emergency calls is clearly out-of-date – and sometimes its age can prove disastrous. Experts across industries, including those in law enforcement, agree that making the transition to what’s called Next Generation 911 – or NG911 – isn’t an “if”; it’s a “when.” Unfortunately, in general we in law enforcement haven’t been as quick to act on NG911 as we should have been. We need to talk about NG911, understand what it is and what it can do for our agencies in particular, share best practices, and begin the process of upgrading from our outdated legacy system to a new system that can do much more.

Presenters: Ruben Montano, Commander, & Nicole Youseff, Pinal Co., AZ Sheriff’s Office

Room: Canal B
Seminar J 3: In Custody Death

Despite the limited and, generally, indirect connection between administers and individual prisoners, when a prisoner dies as a result of prisoner-on-prisoner assault, self-inflicted harm, an accidental injury, a medical problem, or other cause the first name listed among the defendants in litigation is generally that of the chief executive (i.e., sheriff, jail commander, director of corrections, warden). Being named as a defendant does not, however, mean the defendant is culpable. This course discusses how vulnerable administrators are to liability claims of failure to protect and what they can do to reduce their vulnerability to liability.

Seminar K 4: Understanding Correctional Hostage Rescue and the Traps

Despite the limited and, generally, indirect connection between administers and individual prisoners, when a prisoner dies as a result of prisoner-on-prisoner assault, self-inflicted harm, an accidental injury, a medical problem, or other cause the first name listed among the defendants in litigation is generally that of the chief executive (i.e., sheriff, jail commander, director of corrections, warden).

Presenters: Lt. Jimmie Barrett, Arlington County, VA Sheriff’s Office

Room: Bayou D
12.30pm – 1.30pm Seminar M 1: Correctional Intelligence

There is a lack of intelligence coordination between law enforcement and corrections officials, largely due to the fact that many officers are unaware of the wealth of intelligence within correctional facilities. Corrections is an unexploited source of vital intelligence. Many correctional facilities identify and track gang members/career criminals, and have the capacity to monitor mail, telephone calls, and visits. Police agencies and prosecuting attorneys need to work cooperatively with corrections officials.

Presenter: Sean Stewart, Commander, Pima Co., AZ Sheriff’s Office

Room: Canal A
Seminar M 2: Administrative Approach to Crisis Intervention Teams and Post-Traumatic Stress

Room: Canal B
1.30pm – 2.20pm Seminar M 3: Prison Mail Issues: Process for Rejecting Mail

Lawsuits from prisoners and publishers alike were filed at an alarming rate. Even more disturbing is the amount of settlements by jails in 2011 for hundreds of thousands of dollars. In particular, Prison Legal News is litigating all over the U.S. and seems to be trying to sucker jail administrators into rejecting subscription to their publication. Winning litigation with PLN must start with policy and procedure development and jail standards that set forth the proper way of handling subscription requests. Waiting to you get sued to act may be too late. Learn what you need to know to defend your jail.
