At this time, this website will be our main source of communication in relaying information to you.
If you have any questions feel free to contact TCI and/or your local Detention Facility Specialist in your region.
Prior to sending any officer to a site for Basic or In-Service Training, agencies should ensure that no officer assigned to the training course is in the process of awaiting test results for COVID-19 or be highly suspected of being exposed to the virus. Additionally, If an Officer has tested positive for COVID-19 recently, that person must be cleared by your agency and health authority prior to attendance. TCI will not require documentation of these clearances at this time, we just request that you please follow all precautions to ensure the training environment does not promote the spread of COVID-19.
IMPORTANT REMINDER: TEMA will not be delivering PPE during the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year Holiday.
