Webinar - Legal Issues in Today’s Jail: Use of Force

The use of force is one of the leading areas of litigation in corrections. Understanding and articulating the legal requirements is critical in determining whether the force was objectively reasonable (pretrial inmates) or was applied in a good faith effort to maintain and restore order (convicted inmates). This webinar will review the leading Supreme Court decisions in the area of use of force, focusing on the report writing instrument used by both the deputy involved in the force and also as a tool in reviewing the use of force regardless of the inmate’s status.

Webinar - Gender, Sexuality, and the Juvenile Justice System: Promoting System Improvement

Understanding gendered pathways into the juvenile justice system equips providers with ways to effectively focus on the complex needs, vulnerabilities, trends, and opportunities of each gender's unique experiences. Sexuality and gender identity lenses are equally important to create an environment that elevates lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer/gender nonconforming and transgender youth who identify with female and/or male development, or neither, and varying sexualities, allowing them to be more of who they are.

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) released a new resource, Reentry Starts Here: A Guide for Youth in Long-Term Juvenile Corrections and Treatment Programs. This toolkit outlines the steps that youth in juvenile corrections and treatment programs can take to prepare for reentry, from seeking support services, to requesting a school transfer, to finding employment.
