Officer forumarticle2009mar I know the economy is bad but when the the economy gets better I want to work for the DOC.

I worked for two years as a juvenile corrections youth leader and four years as a adult community corrections resident supervisor.Is it hard to get on SRT and STAR?

I know you have to be in good shape and have a good service record but do you have to “know somebody”or just have to work hard and stay out of trouble?

Also does the DOC have intelligence officers? more

    Work hard and stay out of trouble pretty much sums it up. I just 'retired' from SRT after 10+ years of service. I was an SRT squad leader and assistant Commander. I realized that at the ripe old age of 60 I should leave it up to the younger generation to bail me out when the time comes. (I will still be there to assist haha) Of course the body always falters long before the mind accepts it. PT test is a regular part of training and done quarterly. As far as 'knowing somebody' to get on the team....if you give 110% to your job every day 'you will' be known by the proper people, and more than likely asked to apply after initial probation is over. Regarding STAR....they are always looking for and recruiting good people. Applications generally come out a couple of times per year. \ Does the DOC have intelligent officers? I would like to hope so! Intelligence officers...not to my knowledge. Other positions as in STG (gang intelligence) are available.
