Law Enforcement AND corrections in Crisis

Are you a frustrated warden, administrator or other decision maker because everything you’ve tried seems to be resisted by staff and/or have little desired  systemwide impact?

Do your staff shortages seem to show little improvement no matter what you do?

The answer for many correctional agencies has been

Staff Resilience Training

Our goal is to empower law enforcement and corrections to transform its working culture, not to change any specific policy or practice, but to empower staff to develop the skills and attitudes to make teamwork, security and rehabilitation work together within the existing structure and budgets.
This two- or three-day staff development training has been helping agencies transform their work cultures for over 30 years. Staff love the training and how they are changed by it.

It is generally thought to be the best training program that staff has participated in.

  • The labor unions are strong supporters of TACT.
  • Employee grievances have dropped to an all-time low.
  • Thank you for helping us change the culture at MCI.

It is the best investment of resources that we have ever made.

Mid 21st Century Criminal Justice: Transforming Work Culture

Now with an instructor supplement to help educators engage students in their classrooms.

It is excellent, right on target! A practical guide for leadership with some very real and true real world examples that can be understood at any level. Changing the work culture is so very important, equally as important as improving pay and benefits that many seem to be continually focused on as the only need.…..but without the culture improvements agencies will continue to struggle with turnover and the poor health and life expectancy of staff despite pay improvements.
