Lexipol, the leading provider of state-specific policies and training for public safety agencies, recently announced the introduction of a Juvenile Detention Policies and Training solution for California. The policy solution is the first of its kind for Lexipol, targeting county probation departments responsible for the care of juvenile offenders.
The new service focuses on the special management needs of the juvenile offender population and includes policy content, management and related training delivered via an online platform and mobile app. It complements Lexipol’s current corrections, fire and rescue, and law enforcement offerings in California.
Lexipol helps public safety agencies reduce risk, liability and costs associated with out-of-date or incomplete policies. Developed by juvenile detention professionals and public safety attorneys, the Lexipol California Juvenile Detention Policy Manual includes more than 165 policies that address the requirements of California’s Title 15 Code of Regulations and Welfare and Institutions Code and are continuously updated to meet changes in laws and best practices. The subscription-based service also includes short, scenario-based training bulletins to reinforce policy content and accountability reporting.
“We are pleased to offer a policy and training solution that addresses the unique programming, rehabilitative and security needs of juvenile detention facilities,” said Lexipol CEO Michael Davis. “The new juvenile detention policies extend the public safety solutions we currently offer in California, in addition to new probation policies we will be offering later this year.”
The California Juvenile Detention Policies and Training solution is available to the 58 counties managing juvenile detention facilities in the state.
