226 Graduates Prepare For Michigan's Most Dangerous Job

Posted: Updated:


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - 266 men and women graduated Friday to work at what's known as Michigan's Most Dangerous Job.


The Correctional Officer Graduation Ceremony took place at the Best Western in Lansing. This group is the biggest graduating class in the last 10 years.

The men and women went through two months of training at the Michigan State Police Academy and will now go to work at correctional facilities across the state.

Officials say the best part about this event is seeing all the smiling faces of the proud family members in the crowd.

"It can be a profession that can put a strain on family relationships. It is not an easy exercise to go through and so it's fun and exciting to watch the family and watch their family members graduate," said Russell Marian, the spokesperson for the Department of Corrections.

There are about 8,000 correctional officers throughout the state.
