The Correctional Management Institute of Texas (CMIT) co-hosted a biennial visit by a delegation from the Polish Central Board of Prison Services to learn about state and local correctional facilities in Texas.
“It is an incredible honor to again host and facilitate a delegation of correctional professionals from the Polish Prison Services,” said Doug Dretke, Executive Director of CMIT. “Through our continuing relationship we are able to provide professional development opportunities for prison and jail officials to share best practices from our different systems and to understand and learn new ideas and approaches to similar challenges.”
The delegation toured jails and prisons throughout Texas.The 10-day visit, which included programs and facilities at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) and several Sheriff’s Offices across the state, featured service dog training, prison-run industries and correctional officer training. The program was co-sponsored by the TDCJ.
