Topic: The Club House / Starting Career in Corrections

I have been in the system for over 22 years now and 20 years as a supervisor, I tell my new officers this can be the best job you ever had or this can be the worst job you ever had. It all depends on your approach to everyday dealings with different and potentially difficult decisions. If you remain open minded and realize you are still dealing with another human being and you remain Fair, Firm, and Consistant with all you deal with, you will be ok. The problem arises when you allow your personal feelings or views to interfere with your decisions. I also want to stress that this is a job, nothing else, it’s not a way of life, it’s not your main focus in life, it’s simply a means to provide for yourself and your family. Stay active outside your job with your family, hobbies, etc…Never allow your job to consume your way of life. Remember while at work you are a vital part of of a TEAM, you watch over each other and you go home every day at the end of your shift!
