Congratulations to 37 Department of Adult Correction officers and staff. They were awarded Advanced Criminal Justice Certificates by the N.C. Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission, during the board’s quarterly meeting.

The Commission created the Criminal Justice Professional Certificate Program in order to recognize the level of competence of criminal justice officers and professionals serving governmental agencies within the State, to foster interest in college education and professional criminal justice training programs, and to attract highly qualified people into a criminal justice career.

Under this program, dedicated officers and staff may receive statewide and nationwide recognition for education, professional training, and on-the-job experience.

Also part of the meeting, was the presentation of Resolutions in Memoriam to the families of four North Carolina Adult Correction officers who died in 2021. This presentation had been delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

A true testament to the dedication and professionalism of those in the N.C. Department of Adult Correction.
