The new Michigan Corrections Officer Training Academy is coming to Jackson College this year, offering training programs 3 or 4 times each year starting in 2014. Recent legislation allows colleges to offer an eight-week training academy for corrections officers. Mary Jo Kennedy, Criminal Justice Coordinator at Jackson College, said the new academy is being offered to meet the growing demand of Corrections and to provide an excellent career option for JC students.
