Our Approach

The jail is a critical component of the local criminal justice system. The jail serves a vital public safety function by providing a place where individuals taken into custody can be safely taken to protect the public. Operating a jail is about safety, security, and preparedness. Safety and security come about through having comprehensive, legally defensible policies and procedures, proper training, supervision, and by being prepared. Risk management is about anticipating problems. If an event is predictable, it’s preventable.

We conduct policy, operational, and risk assessments to discover potential liabilities before they become a major problem. We work with you to develop realistic solutions to shortcomings. We also conduct case reviews and provide expert witness services.
