Twenty-one new graduates are now beginning their new careers as corrections officers in three local counties.

On Wednesday morning at Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica, 21 corrections officers graduated from the 2018 Basic Corrections Academy. The graduates will work as corrections officers in Oneida, Herkimer and Madison counties.

The new officers underwent seven weeks of strenuous physical training, as well as education from MVCC’s police academy program. Law enforcement officials say the partnership provides the specific training needed for handling inmates on a daily basis.

“So whether it’s eight, 10, 12 hours, you always have to be on your toes in that setting, because there are potentially dangers that can come about at any time,” said Oneida County Undersheriff Robert Swenszowski.
