In an exciting collaboration, CMIT and NAAWS are teaming up to bring the very popular Wardens Peer Interaction Training Program to a new level.
The program is for Wardens, Associate/Deputy Wardens, and Jail Superintendents. We encourage agencies to send a team of two. Participants will be contacted by our office and provided additional information about the program. Wardens have continually given very positive feedback to the University saying, “This program is truly one of the best seminars we have ever attended.” This program is very popular and will fill up fast. Only the first 35 registrations will be accepted. Please register early!
