Event Dates

Most jails have suicide prevention programs in place.

Yet, inmates keep dying and suicide remains the leading cause of death in jail facilities.

Part 2 of this series will cover key issues rarely talked about in relation to preventing inmates from killing themselves.

These issues are essential to preventing in-custody suicide deaths and reducing the liability associated with them.

The presenter is a jail suicide expert who is regularly involved with lawsuits related to suicide deaths in corrections.

Audience participation and lessons learned from suicide litigation will be highlighted.
