Gwinnett County correctional officers supervise individuals who have been arrested, convicted of a crime, and ordered by the courts to serve a prison sentence in the Gwinnett County Comprehensive Correctional Complex.
Correctional officers maintain security and offender accountability in order to prevent disturbances, assaults, and escapes. They routinely inspect locks, windows, doors, gates, and fences for signs of tampering; and report security breaches and unusual occurrences. Officers also inspect the facility for unsanitary conditions, contraband, and fire hazards. They evaluate the quality/quantity of work performed by offenders and prepare disciplinary reports in response to offender rule violations.
Attitude and performance lay the foundation for career progression. Correctional officers can move up the ranks to Corporal, and then to Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain, Deputy Warden, and Warden. Education and training courses help prepare correctional officers for promotion.
