Corrections as a Career
Corrections is one of the fastest growing career fields in the country. Weber County needs dedicated, professional staff in order to safely and securely operate the Weber County Correctional Facility. Weber County Corrections professionals provide a valuable service to the community through community protection. Community protection is accomplished by incarcerating offenders consistent with court orders and operating the Correctional Facility in a manner that keeps staff, the offender, and the public safe. The Weber County Correctional Facility also maintains habilitative programs designed to assist offenders in returning to the community as law abiding and productive members of the community.

Once hired, Weber County currently offers the Academy training at no cost to the employee and pays the employee wages while attending the Academy. Academy training lasts approximately 12 weeks followed by a Field Training and probationary period at the Weber County Correctional Facility. Weber County offers excellent pay and benefits.
