Certified Jail Supervisor



The Certified Jail Supervisor
certification is for mid-level managers.  Candidates are tested on
their general knowledge regarding:
  • Management / Professional Issues
  • Inmate Management
  • Communications
  • Environment / Equipment
  • Special Populations
  • Support Services

Although general knowledge of the experienced jail supervisor and familiarity with current practices are what is required to pass the examination, the CJS Resource Guide will be of some assistance in preparing for the examination. The list of resources is neither all-inclusive nor exhaustive.
