NIRMA recognizes that law enforcement and corrections present unique risks to our members. NIRMA created the Law Enforcement and Safety Specialist role in 2009 specifically to support Sheriff’s Offices in risk mitigation efforts. Since that time, the services provided by the Law Enforcement and Safety Specialist have proven to be both effective and highly valued by NIRMA members.

The Law Enforcement and Safety Specialist is part of the Loss Prevention Team. The individual in this role serves as a resource to member counties and provides professional level consulting, training, and other assistance on law enforcement patrol and corrections issues. In keeping with NIRMA’s safety focused mission, this role is also responsible for providing certain additional loss prevention services related to occupational safety and tort liability exposures.

The person to fill this role must be effective in both formulating and delivering employee training.
