Jail Correspondence Training

Effective October 1, 2023, we will be ending the NSA Jail Officers and 1st & 2nd Line Supervisors Correspondence Training courses.

Due to reduction in sales, the National Sheriffs’ Association has decided to pause the Jail Correspondence Training Programs. 

Until that time, and based on available inventory, please contact either bdossey@sheriffs.org or esimpson@sheriffs.org  if you wish to place an order. 

Completion of the program (passing both the Chapter Tests and Final Exam) must be done by July 1, 2024.
