With almost 50 years of combined Corrections experience, Gould Consulting LLC is a partnership between

Jason and Barbara Gould.  

Jason Gould started his career in Corrections in 1999 at the Genesee County Sheriff's Office (GCSO) in Flint, MI.  Jason retired at the rank of Captain/Jail Commander in December 2022.  During his time with GCSO, Jason mastered all aspects of jail operations and was instrumental in the development and implementation of Genesee County's I.G.N.I.T.E. (Inmate Growth Naturally and Intentionally Through Education) program.  This program has become a "National Standard" with the support of the National Sheriff's Association for changing culture in correctional facilities across America.  Currently, Jason consults for the National Sheriff's Association and returned to the Genesee County Sheriff's Office in February 2023 as the Major over Operations and Restorative Justice.

Barbara Gould began her career with the Genesee County Sheriff's Office (GCSO) in Flint, MI in 1997 as a Marine Officer.  In 1999, Barbara hired into GCSO as a full-time Corrections Officer.  Barbara quickly excelled in all aspects of Corrections and ultimately retired in 2018 after creating GCSO's state recognized and certified Local Corrections Officer Training program.   Barbara served as the Director of Training for the Michigan Sheriffs' Coordinating and Training Council from 2018 through 2022, overseeing training compliance for the 79 jails in Michigan.  Currently, Barbara writes national online training content, instructs at Corrections Officer Training Academies in Michigan, writes and instructs in-service training nationally, and provides wellness resources and training to corrections individuals.
