(Decatur, GA) – The Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) held a graduation ceremony for 48 newly-trained Juvenile Correctional Officer (JCO) cadets on Friday, December 8, at the Georgia Public Safety Training Center in Forsyth, GA. The cadets have joined the ranks of other JCOs at DJJ secure facilities across the state.
“Juvenile Correctional Officers help provide a safe environment to transform and rehabilitate the young lives in our care,” said DJJ Commissioner Shawanda Reynolds-Cobb. “I am so proud of the commitment these new officers have made to help our justice-involved youth build a brighter future. I welcome them to our team of professionals.”
Basic Juvenile Correctional Officer Training (BJCOT) is a 240-hour comprehensive program that provides basic skills training in security practices and procedures. To complete the program, a cadet must meet established standards on written examinations that evaluate cognitive knowledge and performance-oriented studies.
The graduates have been assigned to 19 DJJ secure facilities in Baldwin, Bibb, Chatham, Clayton, Crisp, Evans, DeKalb, Gilmer, Fulton, Laurens, Muscogee, Rockdale, and Terrell counties.
