Security Threat Groups in Jails

Security Threat Groups (STGs) are broadly defined as ‘any group that presents a risk to the security of the institution or personnel.’ They are detrimental to the best interests of the inmates, and work in opposition to the orderly function and operation of the institution.

This class provides staff with a better  understanding of identifying, classifying, and managing the individuals in STG’s. It focuses on developing the participant’s level of knowledge of gangs, as well as current activities, trends and reduction strategies. The class examines gang intelligence, correctional intelligence protocols, security threats, and unit development and operational management. It will also address street gang evolution, gang crime, gang identification, communications, typology, personal safety, and the psychological and sociological impact gangs have on society, as well as officer and public safety.

TAKEAWAYS – Participants walk away with:

A better understanding of Security Threat Groups;
The ability to recognize signs of STG activity in a facility;
Insight into STG mentality; and
An appreciation for the importance of properly classifying members of
security threat groups.
