Local Corrections Officer Training at the Macomb Criminal Justice Training Center.
Job opportunities for correctional officers are expected to grow through the year 2018. More prisons and jails are being built to house the rising numbers of criminals. Employment opportunities for corrections officers will continue to increase to fill new jobs as well as to replace officers who retire or leave their jobs for other reasons. Corrections officers are rarely laid off because security must be maintained in correctional institutions at all times. Area sheriff departments prefer hiring candidates who have completed the certification process.
The Macomb College Criminal Justice Training Center Corrections Academy is a great way to get this training done by spreading out the training so you can continue to work or attend other college classes. Please check out the link for our corrections academy and if this sounds like something for you, use the link for the application to the this process started.
