The Correctional Management Institute of Texas will host the Emergency Preparedness Program for Corrections from May 11-15 in the Criminal Justice Center. This program, produced in conjunction with the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) and the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ), represents a significant national collaboration to provide critical training to a national market. Participants are highranking officials responsible for emergency preparedness and crisis management from more than 10 states.
From July 20-24, CMIT will conduct its second Media and Public Relations class for criminal justice practitioners. The first class, held in 2008, met with resounding success and provided CMIT with tremendous job-related performance feedback. Many of the participants put their newlyacquired knowledge into practice in front of television cameras and radio microphones within days of course completion.
