With the national population of correctional officers at approximately 430,000 and an estimated annual turnover rate for corrections officers approaching 40 percent, it is imperative for administrators of jails and prisons to provide training opportunities. These opportunities improve employee performance and foster career advancement. Educational technology – most notably a learning management system (LMS) – can support a comprehensive training program, improve recordkeeping for administrative staff, and reduce costs for government agencies.
