|Court Tactics and Techniques||There are few places more dynamic, emotional, and potentially dangerous to transport an inmate than a courthouse. Anytime you transport an inmate out of a secure correctional facility, you must be vigilant of your surroundings. This is exponentially true for courthouses and courtrooms. Inmates, their family, victims, and enemies know in advance when then court proceedings will be held. This provides ample opportunity for escape attempts, passing of contraband or assaults. That coupled with the emotional context around court proceedings, testimony, and sentencing, the courtroom requires a heightened level of awareness and security. This course will focus on transporting and monitoring inmates going to court, in a way that is safe and efficient for the inmate, yourself, and others.||1h|
