Fire officers face more problematic legal issues in today’s work environment than ever before.

Gerry Roberts, JD will discuss how the documentation you may be doing to achieve accreditation can also improve your legal defensibility. Learn how the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections addressed these challenges by joining us for a free webinar, Transgender Populations In Corrections, presented by David Radziewicz, PREA Coordinator for PA DOC.
