• Captain (Correctional Officer VI)

    Caroline Co. Commissioners
    Job Description
    Captain (CO VI), Caroline County Department of Corrections
     
    About the Department: The Caroline County Department of Corrections operates the County Detention Center located at 101 Gay Street in Denton. The Detention Center is a historic building on the banks of the Choptank River. The Detention Center is a secure correctional facility. Inmates can spend up to 18 months at the facility. Individuals with longer sentences are normally sent to a State prison.
     
    In Caroline County the majority of our inmates are local residents waiting to stand trial or serving time for lesser offenses. In many areas, the jail is “out of sight and out of mind.”  We take a different approach in Caroline County. With innovative, thoughtful programs like CARE (Community Assistance and Rehabilitation Enterprise), work release, and the cat shelter program, we try to keep our low security inmates involved in the community. Our work programs provide valuable services to local agencies and help lower the cost of corrections for taxpayers. We also have had many success stories where positive work experiences and other programs have helped local residents learn from their mistakes and avoid returning to jail.
