Detention Officers Graduate from Certification Course at CFCC
Cape Fear Community College celebrated the graduation of its most recent group of Detention Officer Certification Course (DOCC) students on Friday, November 6, 2020. Thirteen students from New Hanover, Pender, Brunswick, and Sampson counties participated in the five-week course and passed the state exam.
Offered to detention officers from across the region, the state mandated course load requires 174 hours of instruction, but these students completed 196 hours of instruction. Extra hours were built in to account for subject control techniques, contraband searches, a mock trial for investigative process, and extra time for review sessions.
“This training is essential to ensure the safety and security of those working in detention facilities and those confined,” said CFCC Director of Law Enforcement Programs Tim Fuss.
Congratulations to DOCC graduates from the following facilities:
- New Hanover County Detention Facility
- Pender County Detention Facility
- Brunswick County Detention Facility
- Sampson County Detention Facility
“Detention Officers are often unsung heroes, but they play a vital role in keeping our communities safe,” said Associate Vice President of Continuing Education Erica Talbert. “Congratulations to these officers and best of luck as they further their law enforcement careers.”
