Detention Officer Certification

The Detention Officer Certification Course course has been researched and contains the most current information available for detention officers. The Commission mandated 174-hour course takes approximately 5 weeks to complete and concludes with a comprehensive written exam. Upon successful completion of the course, the new detention officer will be eligible to be certified as a detention officer in North Carolina.

There are more than 50 accredited DOCC delivery sites in North Carolina. They include community colleges, sheriff’s offices, and the North Carolina Justice Academy.
