Dear Leader,

As correctional leaders, you safeguard the physical health of your correctional officers through the provision of in-service training, personal protective equipment and the surveillance technology required to keep our jails and prisons secure. But what are you doing for the mental health of your COs?

The holiday season can be particularly stressful for staff as they work long shifts away from their families over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s. In today’s Leadership eNewsletter we highlight some of the ways correctional leaders can help personnel manage stress not only during the holidays but year-round.

We also review three inmate video visitation landmines that can create legal challenges for correctional administrators and Lexipol co-founder Gordon Graham discusses the challenges of contraband cellphones.
