Schools Offering Online Corrections programs

While suspects are awaiting trial or after criminals are convicted and sentenced for their crimes, they may spend or serve time in correctional facilities like jails or prisons. Correctional officers are the ones who are responsible for maintaining order, enforcing rules, preventing further crimes from being committed, averting escape attempts, and promoting safety in these facilities. They may also supervise and assist inmates.

To work as a correctional officer you must be in great physical shape and be prepared to deal with a variety of potentially dangerous situations. In addition, a degree in corrections or another criminal justice field is an advantage when applying for the best correctional officer jobs.
