Meet Herns Mitton

Herns Mitton has over 24 years of Corrections experience as a result of his service with the NYC Department of Corrections (DOC). Herns served as the Assistant Deputy Warden of the Emergency Service Unit (ESU) Training Division and The Training Academy. During his tenure, Herns was responsible for implementing training and developing training curricula regarding Use of Force, Chemical Agents, Facility Response and a host of other tactical and security related training.

Herns was chosen by the Department to train the executive leaders and management staff, including training the Investigation Division, trial attorneys, and the non-uniform staff in the Use of Force Policy. Herns served the Department as Lead Testifier at OATH Proceedings and as subject matter expert. He also revised the Departments facility Response Order, Chemical Agents, and Taser Directives. While being a Certified General Topics instructor by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services, Herns introduced to the Department the new Chemical Agent.
