As part of that future we will need dedicated individuals to help bring this updated facility and our new operational philosophy into practice.
This construction project has been a major focus for some time, however beyond the physical structure; an agency must also have operating philosophies. For Corrections, Sheriff Clayton has identified Inmate Behavior Management as the operational philosophy. The Inmate Behavior Management Program (IBMP) is based upon a model developed by the National Institute of Corrections that is being taught nationally. IBMP acknowledges the critical importance of effectively managing inmate behavior and serves to clearly identify specific elements that must be supported. The elements have been identified as: assessing risk and need, assigning inmates to housing, meeting basic needs, defining and conveying expectations, supervising inmates, and keeping inmates productively occupied.
Knowing these needs the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office is searching for Corrections Officers and Community Service Officers for the Corrections Division who demonstrate core competencies in areas that support this philosophy. Individuals who possess strong competencies in areas such as; Service Orientation; Interpersonal Skills; Judgment; Self Control; Integrity & Credibility and Initiative.
