Getting an education is important, but it’s even more important to be able to get a job when you’re done. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 6% growth rate for Security Guards by 2026.* When you graduate with your Associate in Specialized Business Degree in Criminal Justice, you can be sure there will be plenty of career options to choose from, including:
Correctional Officer and Jailer
Correctional Officers and Jailers keep both prisoners and the public safe when prisoners are in transit between prison and the courtroom. They oversee people who have been accused of a crime as well as those who have already been convicted.
Court Clerks make sure that courtroom proceedings are performed correctly and efficiently. They communicate with attorneys and witnesses to let them know when they are supposed to appear in court, prepare court dockets and record court proceedings.
Security guards remain vigilant in order to help prevent crime. They watch people and buildings, familiarizing themselves with routine procedures so that they can be aware of anything suspicious or out of the ordinary. Quite often, Security Guards are the first people to notice incidents like theft, vandalism, terrorism, fire or other criminal activity.
