TN Department of Corrections Shares Duties with Students
Criminal Justice students had guest speakers from Tennessee Department of Corrections Board of Probation and Parole. Guests spoke with students about their roles and responsibilities in the field office. Officers that came out inform the students that each one of them worked in different units such as: sex offender unit, parole, and probation. Each unit has to complete a home visit, urine test, employment checks, arrest check, and other things. Officer's informed the students of the consequence of texting inappropriate pictures and how they could be charged with a sex offense as a juvenile. They told the students that some individuals on probation have to wear a GPS and how the GPS tracking device worked. District Director LaRhonda Williams was one of the four officers, along with the Sex offender supervisor, parole and probation officer who spoke with the student. The students eagerly asked questions and discussed multiple topics during their visit.
