Annotation: The facility training captain (FTC) program developed by the New York City Department of Correction provides a training bridge between the central academy and individual correctional facilities.
Abstract: The initial program provided an FTC for each major jail and had a dual reporting structure in which each FTC reported both to the facility warden and the academy's commanding officer. The primary mission of the FTC program was to create a cadre of master trainers, deployed full-time to assist entry-level correctional officers in their adjustment from the recruit training classroom to the jail work environment. The program included classroom instruction, instructors and speakers, training bulletins and handouts, roll call presentations, consultation with correctional officers, and audiovisual programs. In 1990, the FTC program was revised to accommodate an increased demand for academy-based inservice training. As a strategic training deployment model, the FTC program will place academy FTC's under the sole supervision of the academy's commanding officer, and institutional wardens will apply to the academy for facility-based training assistance.
