What Is CERT?
CERT is trained to handle:
- Riot Response
- Transport high-risk inmates
- Injured officer rescue
- Assist during hostage situations
- Building and area searches
- Inmate disturbances
- The apprehension of barricaded subjects
When a critical incident occurs, CERT officers are ready to move in and control the situation. Trained in use-of-force control and tactics and outfitted with protective equipment, CERT sweeps in and handles even the most volatile situations.
For candidates eager to ensure the safety of others when the worst happens, the Corrections Emergency Response Team might be just the job for you.
