APPA Institute Workshop (Winter 2016): Response Control Tactics

This program provides statistical information regarding how probation and parole officers are killed and assaulted in the line of duty and points out the difference in types of attacks based upon the officer’s gender. It then provides control techniques that can be used by any officer to stop the most common attacks experienced by probation and parole officers. These techniques are not based on gender, size or strength. They are easily learned, easily applied and easily retained with a minimum of practice. During the lecture portion of the program, audience response pads will be provided to participants so they may anonymously respond to questions and review responses from other participants. In the hands-on portion, participants will be shown specific techniques to stop various types of attack and will have the opportunity to practice the techniques, with feedback from the presenters.

APPA Institute Workshop (Winter 2016): Enhancing Community Supervision: Research Results on Perceptions of Police-Probation/Parole Partnerships

While several studies exist concerning law enforcement perceptions of police-probation/parole partnerships, few have examined probation/parole perceptions. For those studies that do include such perceptions they have been local and qualitative in nature. This workshop will cover the results of a nationwide study examining probation/parole perspectives of partnerships with law enforcement. The study used a survey to determine favorableness to partnerships with law enforcement in relation to a variety of important concepts including partnership typology, respect for officers’ role, benefits to the officers’ and department’s operations, crime reduction potential, mission distortion, mission creep, leadership support, stalking horse incidents, rehabilitative ideology, barriers to partnership (e.g., funding), training needs, and a variety of individual and organizational demographics. In addition, a separate study conducted in Pennsylvania examining perceptions of partnerships by Police Chiefs, compared to that of Probation/Parole Chiefs, will also be discussed.
