Correctional officers graduate with honors

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

The Worcester County administration recently congratulated its newly certified Worcester County Jail Correctional Officers: Nicholas Jones, Alecia Lawrence and Christina Collins. The three new officers graduated from the Wor-Wic Community College’s Eastern Shore Criminal Justice Academy Correctional Entry Level Training Program with above a 90 percent average test score.

According to the college’s website, the criminal justice programs, which includes the corrections department, provides students with the basic skills needed for entry-level positions in either corrections, forensic science or law enforcement. The college also offers continuing education for people currently in those vocations. Students can earn an associate degree, certificate and letter of recognition depending upon the course of study.
