In the fall of 2018 and as a pilot program, the Bureau of Community Corrections conducted regional basic trainings for the staff at the contracted corrections facilities (CCFs). This not only required obtaining necessary resources, but it also required teamwork from both within and beyond the BCC. With the assistance of the Training Academy, Board of Probation and Parole, and BCC staff, the pilot program was an immense success. This basic training is specifically for community corrections contract staff, which shortened the required time for the training from two weeks to one week.

In 2019, the BCC took on the challenge of conducting regional basic trainings for the contract facility staff, with the goal of providing two trainings per region within one year. Since the commencement of the CCF Basic Training Program, 192 contract staff have successfully completed the basic training. Throughout the implementation of the program, the participants have received many essential trainings ranging from PREA to Incident Command System from the subject matter experts in the field. Upon the successful completion of basic training, the participants receive a certificate of completion.

The CCF Basic Training Program could not be a success without cohesive teamwork and zealous staff who continually sacrifice their time to support the CCF Basic Training Program. The BCC administration appreciates the time, assistance and efforts given from the Training Academy, Board of Probation and Parole, BCC staff, and those staff from the contract facilities who have attended the program thus far. The estimated cost savings for this change is in excess of $75,000.
