Suspect Transport

The Suspect Transport topic area gives officers the training and tools they need to safely complete the unique mission of transporting a suspect from one jail facility to another. The task can be one of the most dangerous periods of time for the officers charged with that duty, as subjects often see the ride as their last, best chance for escape.
