TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (July 2, 2014) – Students interested in a
career in corrections will have an opportunity this month to network at the
Florida Public Safety Institute.
The Institute will offer a Corrections Basic Recruit certificate
program interest meeting July 21 from 10 to 11 a.m. in Room 214 of the classroom
building on the FPSI campus, located on Highway 90 west of Tallahassee. The meeting is intended for students who wish to become corrections officers with the Florida Department of Corrections or
Leon, Gadsden or Wakulla County Jails.
“This will be an opportunity
for students to meet recruiters and representatives from local correctional
agencies and get accurate information on employment and enrollment requirements,”
said Andrea Blalock, corrections coordinator.
Recruiters from the Gadsden Re-Entry Center, located on
FPSI’s campus, will be in attendance to discuss the hiring process for the
Florida Department of Corrections.
In addition to networking opportunities, this meeting will
allow FPSI to gauge student interest in a 13-week Corrections Basic Recruit
training program set to start September 8. The class would meet every weekday
from 7:45 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and graduate December 16. Blalock will explain the
requirements for the class at the meeting.
