The Criminal Justice curriculum contains a broad range of courses designed to equip correctional officers with the knowledge and understanding of inmate processing, maintaining order in the jail and invoking disciplinary measures when necessary. In addition, a correctional officer may also perform cell searches for drugs and other contraband, inspect the facility for cleanliness, and stand guard during exercise periods. This training program, which may be completed over two trimesters, provides correctional officers with knowledge of emergency procedures, mental health and first aid, defensive tactics and use of force, ethics, and legal issues, investigations and personal development, among other topics.
