Thumbnail previewWhile the Large Jail Network (LJN) meeting is only for larger jails/jail systems, many of the topics presented and discussed are pertinent and valuable to jails and jail systems of any size. The meeting is sponsored every spring and fall by the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) for administrators of jails and jail systems with more than 1,000 inmates. At each meeting a number of current and important topics are presented by corrections professionals and consultants working in the field of corrections. The most recent meeting held in March 2011 covered several emerging topics including:

  • Legal issues - presented by William C. Collins, Esq.
  • Jail suicide prevention and essential findings from the National Study of Jail Suicide: 20 Years Later  - presented by Lindsay Hayes, National Center on Institutions and Alternatives
  • Effectively presenting data and policy options to decision-makers - presented by Michael Jones, Jefferson County Criminal Justice Planning, Colorado
  • PREA standards and tools for reducing inmate sexual assault and abuse - presented by Andie Moss, The Moss Group
  • Recap of Attorney General Meeting on PREA Standards - presented by Mitch Lucas, Charleston County, South Carolina and practitioner representative of the American Jail Association
  • Jail leadership development - presented by Mike Jackson, NIC, based on material prepared by Susan McCampbell, project director, Center for Innovative Public Policies, BJA "Developing The Next Generation of Jail Leaders" initiative
  • Association and legislative updates - presented by Kathy Black-Dennis, ACA
  • An "open forum" discussion about kiosk services, crisis intervention training, a jail-managed homeless shelter, veterans in jail, "green" jails, and more.
