SAN ANTONIO — Fifteen corrections officers and one civilian employed at the Bexar County Jail earned national certifications this week from the American Correctional Association.

“We are really raising the bar, so I'm proud of each one of you,” Sheriff Susan Pamerleau told them during a ceremony Tuesday.
