Jail Management Course/Shelby County

The Northeast Alabama Law Enforcement Academy is presenting a two week (80-hour) Jail Management Course. The courses will begin at 7:00 a.m. (four 10 hour days) at the Shelby County Tag Office 2nd floor Meeting Room. Tuition for the course includes all notebooks, handouts, and materials. This course is designed for both municipal and county jail personnel.

With the growing number of lawsuits being filed against jails, jail personnel and jail administrators, no agency that maintains a jail can afford not to send their jail personnel to this course. The curriculum for the Jail Management Course has been approved and adopted by the Alabama Peace Officers Standards and Training Commission.

A sampling of the subjects that will be included in this course include:

  • History of Jails
  • Ethics, Loyalty and Morale
  • Special Needs Inmates
  • Basic Jail Security
  • Supervision of Inmates
  • Legal Rights and Standards

To successfully complete this course the student will have to score a minimum of 70% on a standard First Aid/CPR exam and two General Exams. Also, a student cannot be absent for more that 5% (4 hours) of instruction. Each student will also be required to participate fully in Chemical Aerosol training which includes a direct exposure to an OC product. Any student who attends the course, but who fails to successfully complete the requirements, will be given a certificate of attendance instead of a certificate of completion.
