Correctional Training Officer In-Service Courses

Our on-the-job training program for jails is a fundamental and essential function. Many programs are designed strictly for the street officer, and we must modify that program to meet the needs of our employees working in our jails.

These eight-hour sessions are designed specifically with the Jail Officer in mind. We will reinforce those skills that are essential to successful operation of Jail Training and Evaluation Program.

Topics Will Include:
  · The role of the Jail Training Officer
  · Thinking outside the Box, Using All the Resources Available
  · Dealing with Difficult Employees
  · Performance Improvement Plans
  · Training Documentation
