I provide on-site technical advice for emergency operations. My responsibilities include identifying, developing and assessing the need for emergency plans. I develop plans for a multitude of emergency situations and prepare staff and equipment in a state of readiness. I am responsible for designing training for all emergency teams within the institution, i.e., Special Operations Response Team (SORT), Disturbance Control Team (DCT), Hostage Negotiation Team (HNT), Crisis Support Team (CST), and Command Control Support Staff (CCSS) to make more effective use of staff resources. I conduct training for newly hired officers as well as annual training for all staff. I develop plans for major and minor mock scenarios and coordinate training activities. I am responsible for accountability and readiness of the Command Center and all emergency equipment. I attend Quarterly meetings to discuss current issues and new developments with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. I have working knowledge of crisis management components and understand generally accepted crisis resolution techniques to include principles of hostage negotiation, hostage rescue, building clearing fundamentals, and tactical team structure and organization. I establish criteria enabling training exercises to be monitored and evaluated from an objective stand point to identify those units, as well as, specialists who demonstrate expert skills in the various emergency response areas (i.e., marksman/observers, repelling, and disturbance control). I maintain a data base of vital records in the Emergency Preparedness Logistic System, which is updated every three months. This information assists in assigning emergency functions for quick retrieval and evaluation in the event the Bureau of Prisons needs to deploy specialists or special teams to handle emergency response situations. The incumbent assumes all other duties that are reasonably related to the position as assigned by the Captain. The incumbent of this position serves as a management official. Technical supervision of employees in specific occupations is not exercised. I assist in planning, directing, coordinating and evaluating national policy. I maintain security of the Federal Correctional Institution maintaining the custody and supervision of inmates, responding to emergencies and institution disturbances. I have the authority to enforce criminal statutes and/or judicial sanctions, including investigative, arrest and/or detention authority on institution property. I have the authority to carry firearms and exercise appropriate force to establish and/or maintain control over individuals.
I possess advanced skills in emergency management techniques and am proficient in identifying problems associated with emergency response. I conduct analysis of current emergency response programs in an effort to meeting the institutions' mission of maintaining a safe and secure facility. I assess the productivity, effectiveness, and efficiency of program operations and establish criteria to measure and/or predict the attainment of program goals and objectives.
I have frequent and direct contact with other Bureau of Prisons facilities, Regional Correctional Services staff, and the Bureau of Prisons Office of Emergency Preparedness and Intelligence Section, BOP Headquarters, Washington, D.C., as well as emergency management officials from FEMA, FBI, USMS, DEA, and INS, to coordinate various mock exercises or actual emergency situations requiring outside assistance. During all major incidents, I interact with other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, as needed, to coordinate resources.
