How did you get your start doing detention officer work, and what career moves did you make to get to your current position?

Do you need a particular educational background?

All States have a Juvenile Detention Academy. Check you State and if you pass all their Psch.,baground,credit, and interview by their Juvenitle training Officers. You,then, can attend their Academy. If you get through the Academy,not all who start do, then you will be assigned to one of their Schools as they call them. They are not Prisons, and juvniles are not inmates, they are delinquents. Good Luck. Hank
