Watch Commander Duties and Responsibilities In a City Jail or Police Department Lockup, 16 hours
In many police departments that have a lockup or jail, the patrol watch commander on nights and/or weekends “ends up” being the on-duty jail commander. Often these patrol sergeants and lieutenants have not had any STC training or corrections experience. This course is not designed to train sergeants and lieutenants to be supervisors, but rather trains them in their role in overseeing jail/lockup operations. This course gives sergeants and lieutenants the general knowledge needed and required as to jail regulations, restrictions, and liability. This course is designed to introduce and explain to sergeants and lieutenants Title 15 and to help them understand and apply Title 15 regulations more effectively in their agency’s jail/lockup.
