Senior Training Officer Aaron Bell from A&E's Behind Bars: Rookie Year

Aaron Bell

Senior Training Officer

There are few officers in the business as intense and in-your-face as Senior Drill Instructor Aaron Bell.

Following an exemplary career as a Corrections Officer at the Penitentiary of New Mexico, Bell retired as a Sergeant before moving on to train the system’s next generation of COs. He is now the Senior Training Officer at the Nation’s first fully accredited Corrections Academy.

In addition to teaching and testing incoming officers before they hit the line, Bell’s job is to break new cadets down before building them back up, and he’s very, very good at it.
