Indonesia: ICITAP Builds Capacity for Maximum Security Detention in Surabaya

On March 6, ICITAP-Indonesia concluded a one-week Core Security Decree training in the Surabaya Specialized Super Maximum Security Prison. Twenty-six corrections security staff, with a range of experience from two-years to 35 years, were provided various presentations, relevant “Best Correctional Practices” pertaining to Specialized Super Maximum-Security Detention Center Core Security Decree training via power points, practical demonstrations, exercises, and scenarios. The participants showed great interest in the information being provided by asking many questions that were pertinent to the training.  By the end of the week, you could feel a certain level of critical thinking beginning to emerge from the students. Two DGC instructors who were part of a previous ICITAP-Indonesia T3 course, one being from the institution itself, participated in this class as instructors throughout the week. They presented classes and participated in the practical exercises. Upon completion of their classes, they were provided constructive criticism from the ICITAP instructor concerning their instructional techniques and knowledge of the subject matter. The time they spent instructing was valuable so they can continue to maintain and improve their skills as Core Security Decree instructors. In Indonesia, ICITAP works with the support of and in partnership with the State Department’s Bureau of Counterterrorism (CT).
