DPSCS Trains Mexican and Salvadoran Correctional Supervisors and Case Managers

photo1(May 23, 2012) --- During the past few years, many countries have sent their people to the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services’ (DPSCS) Public Safety Education and Training Center (PSETC) in Sykesville, as well as to individual prisons and community supervision offices to learn how we do what we do.

This week, instructors from the Maryland Police and Correctional Training Commissions based at PSETC will be graduating classes from not one but two nations. Mexican federal prisons sent a contingent here to take our First Line Supervisor Program; and El Salvador has a group going through the Case Management Training Program.

Frequently, these training efforts are arranged or requested by the State Department, and include trips to DPSCS’ newest and most high-tech prison: North Branch Correctional Institution near Cumberland.

Additionally, the DPSCS K9 Unit has trained law enforcement and correctional agencies from around the region, nation, and world in cell phone interdiction and other techniques.

DPSCS is happy to provide top-notch training thanks to its many professionals in corrections and community supervision at PSETC, and is proud to be an innovative agency to which many countries turn for help.
