A Certified Jail Manager receives a level of professional
respect in dealings with members of the public, policy
makers,and local government executives that exceeds the
level of respect that most others in the field receive in
similar interactions.

Although general knowledge of the experienced
jail manager and familiarity with curr
enpractices are
what is required to pass the examination,  the

is neither all-inclusive nor exhaustive
