Mid Michigan Community College (MMCC) would like to announce the completion of its most recent Local Corrections Officer Training Academy held at the Mt Pleasant Campus.
The 16-week academy offers a comprehensive, interactive instruction in various disciplines for Mid students and local correction officers from various Michigan Sheriff Departments.

“Congratulations to our graduates who are dedicated to learning important skills in order to safely and effectively manage our inmate population. The training helps our corrections officers develop and practice the tools necessary to be successful in a high stress environment,” noted Barney Ledford, Criminal Justice Coordinator at Mid.
