“Tag-Along” means to shadow a correctional employee during a normal tour of duty. In partnership with the Anne Arundel Community College, the Anne Arundel County Department of Detention Facilities offers the opportunity for students to see, firsthand, the day-to-day operations of a local correctional facility. Because participating students have the opportunity to directly observe correctional employees in performance of their duties, they get the “inside perspective” of how jails really operate. Students considering a career in corrections find the experience particularly valuable because they gain better insight into the rewards and challenges of a correctional career. Students considering the field of law enforcement also find the Tag-Along enlightening because they have the opportunity to observe what happens with offenders after arrest.
