Corrections

Correctional officers play a pivotal role in protecting public safety.  They not only separate individuals convicted of crimes from communities across the country as they serve out their sentences, but they also deter those who have completed their sentences to live law-abiding lives through a variety of reentry initiatives that prepare them to re-enter society.
