Correctional Facilities Planning Seminar 
Join us in 2024 (Exact Dates Coming Soon).
This correctional facilities planning seminar is designed for Sheriffs, corrections directors and command staff, county administration, elected and tribal officials and public safety sector employees only.
If you are contemplating a new or remodeled facility or facilities, this is the seminar for you. The seminar is designed to follow the organic flow of a project from conception to building completion. The material is presented to help “project managers” better understand the selection, design and construction process, avoid pitfalls and answer questions. Our goal is to provide you a road map for your project success.
This seminar features not only classroom instruction but takes attendees on a tour of a nationally recognized correctional facility.
And we will be there for you after the seminar has concluded as well. We will answer questions and assist you and your entity as you move to address critical facility needs. Senior staff have almost four decades of experience working specifically for the public safety sector. We hope you will join us.
