Reducing Use of Force Incidents in a Correctional Setting

Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office uses online training to better prepare new jail staff


Minimizing use of force incidents

Corporal Harris, Training Officer with Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office describes how using Relias to train and onboard new hires streamlines the process, and Jail Commander Major Kinlein illustrates how quickly you can onboard and training with Relias, to exponentially exceed past traditional training rates. Corporal Harris also describes how attorneys pull training records when looking to build lawsuits, but their officers and staff use what they learn in their jobs and in practical situations, and his department sees a reduction in mistakes and this mitigates the liability and risk to his officers and department.
