Career Summary

Administration of Justice careers continue to be some of the fastest growing occupational fields in the nation today. Financially and professionally rewarding employment may be found in such areas as prevention, discovery, control and treatment of crimes and criminals on the local, state, federal, and private sector levels. The general field of Administration of Justice can be broken down into four main categories: Law Enforcement, Corrections, Courts, and Private Security Services. All four areas offer a great opportunity for advancement, personal growth, and fulfilment to well-trained candidates. Those individuals who have the aptitude and sense of commitment to public service and who want to make a difference in their communities should strongly consider the law enforcement career path.

Law Enforcement Officers are charged with responsibility to keep our cities crime and corruption free. They patrol the streets, respond to emergencies, make arrests, interview witnesses, write reports, enforce traffic laws, and build community relations. To succeed as a Police Officer, one must demonstrate high standards of honesty and integrity as well as compassion and respect for the rights and diversity of all people. Police work offers challenge, excitement, variety, teambuilding, and job satisfaction, as well as excellent salary and benefits.

Correctional Officers are responsible for monitoring and supervising inmates in jails, reformatories, penitentiaries, half-way houses, and juvenile-detention facilities to ensure their compliance with rules and regulations. Their job includes admitting and processing offenders, inspecting their cells, escorting them to various locations, overseeing their work and recreational activities, stopping disputes and fights between prisoners and restraining them if necessary. Correctional officers keep written logs of residents' conduct, documenting their behaviour, daily routine and work performance, and report their observations to the Superintendent or Warden of the correctional institution.

Bailiffs, also referred to as marshals or court officers, are responsible for maintaining courtroom safety and order. Their duties range from enforcing courtroom rules, assisting and protecting judges, guarding juries and other participants during hearings and trials to delivering court documents and running errands.
