Texas HB 2372, Requiring Training for Texas Juvenile Corrections Officers

By Terry Vittone | August 05, 2015 | Texas | In Effect
Texas HB 2372, Requiring Training for Texas Juvenile Corrections Officers
Texas HB 2372 requires the Texas Juvenile Justice Department to provide training to all juvenile corrections officers hired after September 1, 2015.
 
Key points of the bill include: 
  • It takes effect September 1, 2015.
  • It requires the Texas Juvenile Justice Department to provide 240 hours of competency-based training to all juvenile corrections officers hired after September 1, 2015.
  • The training must provide the officer with information and instruction related to the officer's duties, including information and instruction concerning:
    • Trauma-informed care
    • Appropriate restraint techniques
    • Behavior management

CPI Training Can Help You Comply
Facilities throughout the US use our Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program because it focuses on prevention, de-escalation techniques, and other alternatives to restraint. Our training helps staff identify underlying causes of challenging behaviors, and how staff and resident behaviors affect each other. The program also emphasizes:
  • Evaluating risk of harm and signs of distress
  • Documenting incidents
  • Safer, less restrictive holding skills to be used only as a last resort
  • Debriefing strategies to help prevent incidents from recurring

How to Get Training
We can bring the Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program on-site to your facility, or you can attend training in one of more than 150 public locations throughout the US.
