The Texas Department of Criminal Justice established a part-time Correctional Officer program in December 1998. The application and for part-time positions is the same as for full-time positions. If selected for employment, part-time applicants must attend the six-week Pre-Service Training Academy and then undergo two weeks of on-the-job training (OJT) on the unit of assignment on a full-time basis. If full-time employment while on OJT interferes with college classes, the officer can undergo OJT on a part-time basis for four weeks. After OJT, the part-time officer works approximately 20 hours per week. The workdays and hours are worked out between the officer and the unit warden.
Part-time officers can permanently change to a full-time position with approval. They also have the option of temporarily switching to full-time employment once per year. This permits those who are working part-time while in college to work full-time during the summer break. With excellent pay, benefits and flexible work schedule, the part-time Correctional Officer employment program is just what many applicants are looking for.
