NL, Atlantic Police Academy partner to recruit correctional officers


The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Atlantic Police Academy are partnering to support the training and recruitment of more correctional officers. The government will provide funding to support 13 seats for NL residents in the Correctional Officer program at the Atlantic Police Academy in Prince Edward Island. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to learn from the academy at a reduced cost, gaining the knowledge needed for a successful career in provincial correctional facilities. “A career in corrections can be a very challenging but rewarding experience,” said NL Minister of Justice and Public Safety Honourable John Hogan. “We recognize there is an ongoing need for more correctional officers, and this financial incentive is a creative solution to help fill positions.”
