Policy Development Services
Developing jail & detention policies and procedures for your agency can be a daunting task! Not to mention that once developed,
questions may remain regarding the constitutionality of the policies.
Relieve the Pressure!
OSS’ Jail & Detention Policies & Procedures have been continuously updated for over 20+ years. With thousands of users, OSS has established a nationwide following with over 2,000 users.
A driving force in the OSS Policy Development Process includes reviews of areas of operation which frequently result in the filing of 42 US Code § 1983 Civil Rights and personal injury lawsuits. Detailed comparisons are made of your agency’s existing policies & procedures, staffing, training, to OSS' The Big Ten® Jail liability issues.
Once comparisons are made, OSS Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) will then begin the process of developing your specific agency's policies and procedures. Weekly, through confidential password
protected portals, OSS will provide initial drafts of your policies and procedures for review and consideration. Carefully noting any specific changes you desire, OSS SMEs will then produce a final draft.
Subject Matter Experts
develop your policies from our existing Jail & Detention Policies & Procedures. OSS SMEs
are recognized in both federal and numerous state courts and are
well versed in the latest evolving industry best practices and court
decisions, and regularly teach law enforcement officers, jailers, risk
managers and attorneys.
Nationwide Best PracticesYour agency's new policies & procedures will include industry best practices and include several state agencies and law enforcement associations insights that have contracted with OSS to develop specific client-branded policy sets - to name a few, the states of Arkansas, Mississippi, Texas, Ohio, Kansas, and more.
Agency policies also contain the
latest risk management practices, with access to regular updates. They will be simple to
understand, straightforward, easily modified and rooted in law.
