LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - Lexington County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Jeremy Joseph Vetter has attained certification from the American Correctional Association as a Certified Corrections Supervisor.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts recently promoted Vetter, 28, to the rank of lieutenant and assigned Vetter to supervise housing at the Lexington County Detention Center. Vetter previously held the rank of sergeant and supervised correctional officers at the Detention Center’s Booking Desk. Metts hired Vetter as a correctional officer on August 16, 2004.

“I am very pleased that Jeremy attained certification as a Certified Corrections Supervisor,” Metts said. “The certification shows that Jeremy is dedicated to improving himself as a professional corrections supervisor, which was a factor in his recent promotion to lieutenant.”

In order to attain certification as a Certified Corrections Supervisor, Vetter successfully completed a comprehensive examination administered by the American Correctional Association, Metts said. The examination assessed Vetter’s knowledge of human resources, his ability to interact with inmates and his commitment to enhance his expertise in the corrections field.

The American Correctional Association implemented a certification program in order to enhance the professionalism of correctional officers and correctional supervisors who work in detention and correctional facilities nationwide, Metts said. The program enables officers and supervisors to learn about best practices and innovative approaches in the corrections field.
