Security Threat Groups in Jails POST# 21169

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 STGs. 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 also looks at street gang evolution, gang crime, and gang identification, in addition to 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 bettering 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.
