The Moss Group is excited to share another article written by some of our very own team members!

This article examines whether three states’ correctional officer training academies increase newly hired officers’ confidence (i.e., self-efficacy) in the tasks they will be asked to perform upon beginning their jobs. Results indicated that officers gained confidence in their core skills and leadership over the course of training, however, they did not gain confidence in interpersonal skills or teamwork. Based on these findings, diversity, and interaction-based training may be helpful to address these concerns.

Please join us as we congratulate Paige Adkins, Executive Coordinator, Dr. Alexander Burton, TMG Consultant; and their team on this publication!
