operating procedures facilitate staff visibility and constructive interaction with offenders in a manner that is consistent with the safety of staff and offenders
staff interact with offenders in institutions and/or in the community, and document information as soon as possible
The Deputy Warden and/or Assistant Wardens will demonstrate and promote ongoing dynamic security ensuring staff interact with offenders on a regular basis.
The Correctional Manager/Manager, Community Correctional Centre, will encourage and promote dynamic security with all correctional staff who interact with offenders regularly.
All staff who interact directly with offenders will:
motivate the offender to engage in pro-social, responsible behaviour
enhance their knowledge base of the offender's activities and behaviours by observing and assessing behaviours (positive and negative) critical to maintaining a safe and secure environment
consider factors that affect offender behaviours and interactions (e.g. communication styles, learning deficits, mental health) and, where appropriate, the needs of women, other groups, and offender’s Aboriginal social history
record and share dynamic security related information with security, case management, health services, intelligence and other pertinent staff
immediately report offender interactions or behaviours that may jeopardize the safety of staff, offenders, public, or the institution and complete a Statement/Observation Report (CSC/SCC 0875)
Dynamic security interactions and observations with offenders will be documented in the log book, Statement/Observation Report (CSC/SCC 0875) and/or Casework Record.
Any new information collected as part of dynamic security prior to an offender’s release will be shared with case management and/or security intelligence staff.
Pursuant to CD 715 – Community Supervision Framework, to ensure continuity of dynamic security of offenders under community supervision, community staff will maintain regular contact with the offender, collateral contacts and police. All interactions will be documented and any safety or other concerns will be immediately shared with a supervisor.
Dynamic security: regular and consistent interaction with offenders and timely analysis of information and sharing through observations and communication (e.g. rapport building, training, networking, intelligence gathering and strategic analysis). Dynamic security is the action that contributes to a safe working and living environment for staff and offenders, and is a key tool to assess an offender’s adjustment and stability.
