CJK 0205 - Law Enforcement Cross-Over to Correction Responding to Incidents and Emergencies

Credit Hours: 0.4

Prerequisite(s): None
Corequisite(s): None

One of the most important duties of a correctional officer is to apply knowledge, training, and reasonable judgment during an emergency. An officer’s first priority is the safety and security of all individuals. Any incident can develop into an emergency; the officer is expected to be effective in the use of equipment, crime scene control, chain of custody procedures, and documentation of involvement. The officer should be aware of agency policies, procedures, and emergency plans, as well as post orders, which are job-specific documents that outline how to handle daily responsibilities and operations.
