I am looking for states that have a great balance of security practices and mental health/thinking for a change training curriculum for pre-service security training for correctional officers and parole agents. If anyone could share Basic Training Schedules so I could do a comparison or visit your training academy I would appreciate it.


Thank you,

Contact Trish Signor at the Iowa DOC for a copy and some information on the Pre-Service Academy curriculum used there.  Iowa runs an 'academic' program that has a significant amount of communication, mental health and offender interaction elements.
