Dear Corrections1 Member,

To help address the unprecedented challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Lexipol and Corrections1 have launched a COVID-19 Learning & Policy Center. This free resource provides coronavirus-related courses, policies and articles, as well as learning management tools, to help correctional officers and facilities safely and effectively operate during this national emergency.

Resources include a COVID-19 course for corrections, refresher training on related topics like influenza, communicable diseases and PPE use, and downloadable policies and procedures. Training officers and government organizations can use Lexipol’s learning management system to assign courses and content to personnel to review, track progress and create training records when assignments are complete.

The Lexipol COVID-19 Learning & Policy Center is free for all corrections agencies. We encourage you to share this critical resource with your local response partners, as well as with neighboring jurisdictions.
