Most corrections facilities use 12 hour shifts and have been using them for 20 years or more. Today, however, some corrections agencies are considering returning 8 or 10 hour shifts – sparking debate amongst corrections personnel. Proponents of the 12 hour shift claim that it saves personnel costs, is easier to schedule, and gives officers the ability to earn more money more time off with their families. Critics of the 12 hours shift cite safety concerns, risk of fatigue, as well as risk of inattention, low employee morale, and stress.
In this live webinar, hosted by EmLogis and presented by corrections expert and consultant, Charles J. Kehoe, participants will learn about the about latest research regarding 8, 10, and 12 hour shifts on corrections facilities and employees. Attendees will learn the pros and cons of each type of shift, and will gain understanding of the impact that various shifts have on specific types of employees. Attendees will also learn how to determine if their corrections facility could benefit from a shift change and if so, how to plan for a successful shift change.
