    I think you should check your english on this post

    Not from NC, but I know around here 18 is definitely way to young to be a corrections officer. Graduate high school and then start working on your degree, no need to rush things..

        Be nice people ,pleeze? Anyways to answer your question ,yes you are too young. Most PD's or Sheriffs and I think the NCDOC requires you to be 21.

        Also I am hoping you have or will graduate high school because the PD's and Sheriff also require a HS diploma or a GED. This is not making fun of you just going by the age you gave.

          In today's employment a high school diploma or GED will not stand a chance in the competition. Maybe back when I graduated in 1991 it may have been ok but to separate yourself from the pack you need a bachelors degree. Most departments now require the degree to get promoted. Your at a great age to continue your education. If you wait like some of us did to get the degree then it becomes a lot harder. Dont let yourself fall into the trap of wanting to get to work now and then get stuck at the bottom level and not have a opportunity to promote. If you choose not to listen to this advice I want you to print this comment and fold it in your pocket for about 5 years then pull it back out......Im sure you will say he was right.

            Some smaller PD's do not require a BD in Criminal Justice but I agree with you that having one before is far better than not. Those smaller PD's will be eventually start asking for a BD ,it is coming around.
