               VHS VIDEO - NEW LISTINGS
Lockup USA, volume 9, issue 8          Hostage Team Selection / Command
Post Guidelines
VHS, color, 28 minutes

This video and training guide constitute the final installment of the ongoing
series on hostage survival and negotiation. This program looks at how special-
ized hostage response teams are necessary whenever there is a hostage crisis in
a correctional facility and how these teams are developed. Also, there is a dis-
cussion of each of the positions on the hostage team and what the responsibili-
ties are of each member. The program also looks at how the hostage response
team interacts with the Command Post and what the duties of each are. In
addition, there is a discussion of Command Post Guidelines and how to handle
the news media during a hostage crisis. A pre-test and post-test are included.

Spanish for Law Enforcement
Texas Commission on Law Enforcement, 1999

This distance education course is designed to give police and corrections officers
a basic competence in Spanish necessary to help them ensure mutual under-
standing and safety during contact with Spanish-speaking persons. Includes an
Instruction Manual, Instructor Guide and two audio cassettes.


Cell Extraction
VHS, color, 20 minutes

This video presents an organized method of removing inmates from a cell using
a shield. The emphasis is on preparation and teamwork, stressing the need for
documentation (in this case, with a video camera) and having medical personnel
on hand to treat potential injuries. The thoroughly explained, step by step pro-
cedure culminates in a surprise ending.




 DIGEST OF CRIMINAL LAWS

 Please note that the 2001 Digest of Criminal Laws has been sold out. 2002
 will see a comprehensive recodification of Maryland’s criminal statutes. As
 such, we are uncertain of the cost and date for distribution of the 2002 edi-
 tion. Please look for further information in a future issue of Training Notes
 or on our website at www.mpctc.net.
