Seneca Sheriff’s 7-Week Correction Office Academy

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office is hosting and delivering a seven week New York State Certified Basic Corrections Officer Academy at the Seneca County Law Enforcement Center in Romulus, New York.The Academy which commenced on February 1st will conclude on March 10, 2010. Members of the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office Corrections and Law Enforcement Division will serve as primary instructors for the seven week New York State Certified Corrections Academy. Instructors from other Sheriff’s Offices will compliment and assist Seneca County Officers in delivering this required State mandated Training. Correction Officer Cadets will be provided instruction in such topics as Ethics in Law Enforcement, Constitutional Law, Search and Seizure, Conflict Resolution, Suicide Prevention, Effective Communication, Inmate Transports, Defensive Tactics and Firearms.Commenting on the Academy, Seneca County Sheriff Jack Stenberg remarked “This is the second time we have put on a Basic Correction Officer Academy, and by doing so, save a tremendous expense by doing this training locally and in house.” “To send one officer for this training to either Monroe or Onondaga County would cost several thousand dollars each.” We have talented certified instructors who have demonstrated they have the ability to deliver this required mandated training.The New York State Division of Criminal Justice has approved our curriculum and proposed schedule.This years Academy has seven attendees; four from Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, two from Ontario County Sheriff’s Office and one from Yates County Sheriff’s Office.Last year, we successfully hosted and delivered a similar NYS Basic Correction Officer Academy and look to deliver another Academy here in the Fall of 2010.
