Cell Extraction Procedures

Mock Prison Riot, Moundsville, WV
April 26 – 28, 2018

A dynamic three-day course designed to address the needs of both the correctional administrator and cell extraction team member. This training will apply both intermediate and advanced tactics for the resolution of incidents in which inmates refuse to comply with lawful orders to exit their cells. Students will be introduced to the use-of-force associated with cell extraction, three-member compliance teams, individual team movement, chemical agent, less-lethal, and equipment overviews, as well as employing crisis intervention to gain inmate compliance before force is utilized. Briefing, debriefing, and completing proper cell extraction documentation will also be covered. Students will complete multiple force-on-force cell extractions and three-man compliance exercises.
