This cell gives students real life experience at the new JCC Corrections Academy.

The powers of a Peace Officer are not taken lightly and are only granted to those who have received sufficient training. The Chautauqua County Office of the Sheriff’s Jail Division provides and offers this training to the zone three area to include Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Allegany Counties. The Basic Course for Peace Officers is comprised of select units of the Basic Course for Police Officers curriculum. All basic training programs are required, by regulation, to “meet or exceed” the minimum standards established by the Municipal Police Training Council (MPTC). Every Peace Officer in the State of New York must successfully complete a training program, a portion of which is prescribed by the MPTC and a portion of which shall be prescribed by the employer. The Chautauqua County Office of the Sheriff’s Corrections Academy is partnered with Jamestown Community College as part of the Corrections Officer Technology Certificate Program. The corrections academy offers 17 credits of the 33 credit hours required for the Certificate Program. The corrections academy provides the core curriculum, a field training practicum, direct supervision, inmate classification and firearms training.

 

The Chautauqua County Office of the Sheriff’s Correction Academy is currently an in-service academy but continues to work toward moving this academy to a pre-service academy for students pursuing a career in Corrections.
