Criminal Justice Basic Academies

An officer's primary responsibility is to protect lives and property. This is true for law enforcement, correctional officers and correctional probation officers, as well as private security guards.

That's why, it is important for officers to have experience in:

  • General law enforcement, correctional or correctional probation techniques and procedures
  • Criminal investigations
  • Emergency medical practices
  • Legal issues
  • Modern law enforcement technology
  • Community relations
