Why You Should Seek An Associate’s Degree In Parole, Probation And Corrections

With the prison system already overcrowded, careers in Parole, Probation and Corrections are on the rise as other solutions are sought for those who break the law. These alternatives include:

  • Mental health facilities
  • Clinics for detox
  • House arrest with supervision

Those who successfully complete their Associate’s Degree will be able to gain access to entry-level posts in these less dangerous and taxing yet no less worthy law enforcement jobs.

Information Relating To Salary And How This Industry Will Grow

In 2004, parole officers made just under $40,000 per annum. The Occupational Information Network said that both Social Service Managers and those who worked as supervisors in correctional facilities made approximately $48,000 per annum.

Positions such as Correctional Treatment Specialist and Parole Officer are believed to be set to grow at a steady rate right through until at least 2014. With a greater emphasis on more humanitarian methods of treating criminals, it is expected that Social Service Manager Careers will rise extremely quickly.
