Michigan Requirements for Local Corrections Officer
If you are seeking a Corrections/Jail Officer position in the state of Michigan with any County Sheriff’s Office, you are required to complete the Corrections/Jail Officer written exam through Empco. As of August 1st, 2021, the Michigan Sheriffs’ Coordinating and Training Council (MSCTC) has changed the standards and requirements for the written test. County Sheriffs’ Offices hiring for Corrections/Jail Officer determine the minimum written test score required to qualify for their individual agency. The MSCTC does not dictate the passing score of the written exam, nor does Empco. Cheboygan County requires at least a 70%.

You must also successfully complete the MSCTC Local Corrections Officer Physical Ability Test (LCOPAT) before being hired as a Local Corrections Officer. Empco does NOT administer the LCOPAT. For more information regarding MSCTC standards and requirements, as well as testing locations for the LCOPAT, please visit
