HCSO Corrections Chief Joe Fowler Earns Prestigious National Certification


Hamilton County, TN - In April of 2016, after completing a rigorous certification process, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Corrections Chief, Joe Fowler, was awarded the prestigious Certified Jail Manager (CJM) Certification by

the American Jail Association.

The Jail Manager Certification Commission (JMCC) and the American Jail Association (AJA) promote the concept of voluntary certification for all jail managers.

Certification is part of a process called credentialing and focuses specifically on the individual. It provides documented evidence to the public that the individual has been examined by an independent professional organization and found to possess current competency in his/her field.

Certification documents the mastery of a strong level of knowledge in one’s specialty. It provides a form of recognition and achievement, indicating to one’s peers that the individual has taken the time and effort, beyond job experience, to learn the Body of Knowledge, thus exhibiting a significant commitment to working in the profession.

Please congratulate Chief Fowler for his accomplishment and for completing this rigorous process.
