West Virginia: Mock Prison Riot

In May 2019, NCSC provided logistical support for a Mock Prison Riot event held in Moundsville, West Virginia in partnership with the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).

NCSC supported the attendance of a total of 55 law enforcement officials from the Caribbean region, including participants from Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Dominica, Antigua and Barbuda, Guyana, St. Kitts and Nevis, Barbados, St. Vincent, Grenada and St. Lucia. The training provides officers with new knowledge, skills, and tools through classroom instruction and live demonstrations.

The Mock Prison Riot is a program of the West Virginia Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation (WVDCR) and the West Virginia Corrections Training Foundation, a non-profit corporation. INL has partnered with the West Virginia Division of Corrections since 2014.
