Dear Leader,

Finding candidates to fill vacant correctional officer positions is a challenge for jail and prison administrators nationwide. Couple that with high employee turnover rates and you have a recruitment and retention crisis that threatens both officer and inmate safety.

Could training be the key to solving this dilemma? In this month's C1 Leaders eNewsletter we explore an employee training program that addresses what new hires fear the most in corrections: the unknown. We also list the essential training agencies should be delivering to both rookie and veteran officers.

What was your onboarding process like when you started in corrections? Email editor@correctionsone.com.
