“​In it together”​ with Stacy Sinner

Stacy Sinner and I recorded an interview online in February 2019 using Zoom. View it at the bottom of this post.

Stacy Sinner photoStacy describes her consulting and technical assistance work with criminal justice agencies and jails. She recently retired from her position as a jail administrator from Olmsted County, Minnesota. Her focus areas as a consultant include operational assessments, staffing analysis, training, executive coaching, and capacity building for agencies.

Topics we discussed:

  • Stacy’s perspectives on fostering agency culture change.
  • The Strategic Inmate Management initiative under way at the National Institute of Corrections (NIC)—distilling the best practices of direct supervision and inmate behavior management, and applicable to all physical plant designs and in both jails and prisons.
  • Stacy’s good fortune to have mentors and supportive sheriffs who wanted their agencies to do work that best served the community.
  • Why working in jails has been a meaningful career path for Stacy.
