Escorting and Transporting Residents in Juvenile Facilities

Green Clock Hours: 2.00

Transporting and escorting residents can be a dangerous assignment for custodial personnel. These duties pose security risks for assaults, escapes, and the introduction of contraband. Custodial staff need training on security guidelines and agency policies and procedures for transporting and escorting residents to maintain personal and facility safety. This course provides youth workers in juvenile detention facilities and other community confinement facilities that house youthful offenders with an overview of general purposes for transporting and escorting residents. It also outlines considerations for safe transport and escort. Some of the information in this course is focused more on staff working in secure facilities with high-risk residents rather than staff working in open or less-secure facilities. However, some of the information in this course can be applied to staff escorting and transporting lower-risk juveniles. Information is presented from a national, broad-based view. It is imperative that staff know and adhere to their agency’s policies and procedures related to the escort and transport of residents.
