The fundamental reason that this position exists is to process the paperwork related to inmate grievances and discipline. The clerks’ major work functions include gathering information, processing information, making determinations, and performing general clerical duties. The incumbents in this classification usually focus on either grievances or disciplinary; however, the incumbents are trained to work in both areas as back-up and support. The Inmate Grievance/Disciplinary Clerk classification differs from other clerical classifications in that the position requires the clerk to interview individuals and make decisions based on the investigation of incidents. Although the clerk is required to gather and process the information and make determinations, the clerks’ supervisor reviews all findings prior to their release. Work is performed under the supervision of a Corrections Officer.
High School diploma or GED and one year experience conducting interviews and making determinations based on the interpretation of laws and policies and the evidence and information collected. Three college level courses in Criminal Justice or Correctional Law can be substituted for the experience.
