TOPIC SELECTED: Corrections Subdivision (aka Detention)
The primary function of a corrections officer is to protect the community by supervising offenders and reporting noncompliance to the sentencing or releasing authority. In addition to the organizational mission statement, the corrections subdivision has its own mission. The mission of the Department of Detention is to serve diligently and reliably collaborate with other entities within the criminal justice community. The Department of Detention will ensure protection of the surrounding community by establishing safe, secure, and human supervision and confinement of inmates. This subdivision has recently been faced with some challenges, including overpopulation of inmates, budget constraints, and high attrition rates. The factors have led to outdated officer equipment, low employee retention rates, and inexperienced management. There is a high level of camaraderie between employees, and interdepartmental communication is exceptional. There is also rapid personnel growth due to many advancement opportunities and efficient employee training and education. The benefits package is one of the better offerings in the state. •
