DALLAS, Dec. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lexipol, the leading provider of state-specific policies and training for public safety agencies, recently announced the introduction of its Juvenile Detention Policies and Training solution in Texas. The service is targeted to detention agencies responsible for the care of juvenile offenders and provides guidance on high-risk policy and training issues.

The new Texas Juvenile Detention policy solution includes policy content, management and related training delivered via an online platform and mobile app. Developed by juvenile detention professionals and public safety attorneys, it includes more than 165 policies that are in accordance with current Texas Juvenile Justice Department standards and are continuously updated to meet changes in laws and best practices. The subscription-based service also includes short, scenario-based training bulletins to reinforce policy content and accountability reporting.  

The addition of juvenile detention policies complements Lexipol’s current corrections, fire and rescue, and law enforcement offerings in Texas. The Texas Juvenile Detention Policies and Training solution is available to all 48 juvenile detention facilities in the state.

“We are pleased to expand our corrections offerings in Texas to address the unique needs of juvenile detention facilities,” said Lexipol CEO Michael Davis. “Having a legally defensible, up-to-date policy manual, along with regular policy training, is key to running a safe and secure facility for youth as well as staff. Lexipol’s manual will be a great resource for Texas juvenile detention facility administrators.”

Lexipol helps public safety agencies reduce risk, liability and costs associated with out-of-date or incomplete policies. To learn more about Lexipol’s Juvenile Detention Policies and Training solution, visit www.lexipol.com/juvenile-detention
