National Jail Succession Planning and Leadership Development Project
Thinking About Corrections


American jails are facing a crisis. Many senior- and mid-level administrators will reach retirement age within the next few years. Without adequate preparation, jails will struggle with a rapid loss of experienced leaders in the not-too-distant future.

In response to this upcoming crisis, the Center for Innovative Public Policies, the American Jail Association, and the Correctional Management Institute of Texas, Sam Houston State University have been working together on the National Jail Succession Planning and Leadership Development Project. Designed to create tools to assure competent jail leadership through user-friendly products, this project will help increase knowledge and give agencies data and tools so they can develop their individual plans to transition mid-managers to leadership. Products include the Mentoring Jail Leaders Program, Core Jail Competencies, and Resource Library.
For more information on these products go to the National Jail Succession Planning and Leadership Development Project.

This project was supported by Grant No. 2009-D2-BX-K006 awarded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance.
