I think you'd make a great Correctional Officer!

Apply today!

The Correctional Officer (CO) is the entry level for those seeking a career in correctional security. The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) offers an additional four security classifications requiring increased levels of leadership skills: Corporal, Sergeant, Lieutenant, and Captain.

A Correctional Officer (CO) provides ongoing supervision of adults in custody (AICs) through observation and person-to-person supervision. COs protect the public daily by keeping our prisons secure and by role modeling appropriate behavior. COs are credited with creating a safe environment by preventing incidents such as escapes, assaults, and contraband trafficking.

Specific duties vary and may include being assigned to towers, gate control, housing units, segregation, recreation, mobile patrol, special details, mail room, inmate work crews, and hospital watches - just to name a few.

Correctional Officers (COs) are responsible for overseeing individuals who have been convicted of a crime and sentenced to serve time in a prison facility. COs maintain security and adult in custody (AIC) accountability to prevent disturbances, assaults, and escapes.

Regardless of the setting, COs maintain order within the institution and enforce rules and regulations. To help ensure AICs are orderly and obey rules, COs monitor the activities and supervise the work assignments of AICs. Sometimes, COs must search AICs and their living quarters for contraband like weapons or drugs, settle disputes between AICs, and enforce discipline. COs periodically inspect facilities, cells, and other areas of the institution for unsanitary conditions, contraband, fire hazards, and any evidence of rule infractions. In addition, they routinely inspect locks, window bars, grilles, doors, and gates for signs of tampering, and most importantly, COs conduct frequent and routine counts at night and during the day to ensure all AICs are accounted for.
