Sgt. Justin Marinari Received the National Designation of Certified Jail Officer.

Sgt. Justin Marinari recently received the national designation of Certified Jail Officer (CJO) by the authority of the American Jail Association through the Jail Manager Certification Commission.

This certification is granted upon the successful completion of a background application and an intensive three-hour examination jointly prepared by the American Jail Association and the Jail Manger Certification Commission. Certification in jail operations is a demonstration of competency and professionalism in the field. It documents the mastery of a strong level of knowledge in the specialty and demonstrates continuing education and growth.

The American Jail Association is a national, nonprofit, educational origination delivering professional development, personal certification, and advocacy services to correctional personnel at all ranks and operational levels working in this Nation’s 3,200-plus jails and detention facilities. It is the only association of its kind that focuses exclusively on issues affecting today’s jail professional. Appointed by the association’s Board of Directors, the five-member commission administers the Certified Jail Manager program, in addition to the Certified Jail Officer program; sets policy; and assures the two programs reflect the changing needs of the profession.

Congratulations Sgt. Marinari for earning this certification from the American Jail Association, and the service that you provide to our community.
