Topic: The Club House / Losing control

Untouchable_1 I have been in your shoes a few times too. Inside you just want to get midevil on them but you have to be professional. You have to be the better person and take the taunts. Then there are the inmates that just don’t want to get the program and physically lash out at other inmates, staff and the COs. That is when the team comes in, spray them down, squish them like a bug, hook them up and take them to the hole. Sure, we all have stood around yucking it up afterwards. Patting ourselves and each other on the back for a job well done kicking the crap out of some convict’s a##. I am just as guilty as the rest. Unfortunately it is part of the job. Noneya should look at the job description. I know the one I read stated. “Occasional physical confortation.” In all her ranting and raving and telling us we are really the bad people. She forgot the other side of a correctional Officer. You all know, the one where you give an inmate a, “Death in the family notice” and you let the inmate literally cry on your shoulder. I know I have had the unfortunate job. Nonya, please tell me how would you go about telling a convicted child molester. Your Father is dead and your family cremated him two days ago so you could not apply for a furlough to go to the funeral. Nonya, what do you say to an inmate who has never recieved a write up, who has never been disrespectful to the Staff and COs, an inmate keeping his nose clean and just doing the time the state has sentenced him to. And, there are alot of inmates like that. What do you say to him after his cellmate takes a bar of soap in a sock and beats him half to death because he farted in the cell. More importantly, what do you say to the inmate with the bar of soap in the sock? You are quick to judge but you do not have all the facts. Being a Correctional Officer is a noble profession. A profession that obviously you are not apart of, well maybe you are. From the cell side of the bars.

Topic: The Club House / Living breathing flesh ?

If it is you facilities policy to see living, breathing, flesh. Then you do what you have been doing. The job, “RIGHT WAY” not “THE EASY WAY.” No one said being a C/O is going to be easy.

Topic: The Club House / CCW

Merc, I work for at a private facility in my state. We contract with our state DOC for approximately 1200 inmates. One night my wife, 5 year old daughter and I went to see a hoilday parade in one of the major cities. I was holding my 5 year old’s hand while we were walking around the corner of a building. I did not see the man and just about crashed into him. The next thing I heard was. “Hey C/O how you doing?” I stepped in front of my daughter and my wife pulled her away from me. Afterwards, out of earshot, my wife looked at me and asked me if I had my gun with me. I said. “American Express baby, don’t leave home without it.”

Topic: The Club House / Private Prisons

cajungirl844: I currently work for CCA, like Keyman I have seen the C/O’s run for the hills when things hit the fan. When you go to work for a. “Private Prison Company” Remember you are working for a company. The company has only one legal obligation. It is not to the contracting jurisdictions or inmates. If the company does not proform per the contract, the sending jurisdiction can cancel the contract. It’s not to the uniformed Officers or staff. You can and will be replaced. If you have gotten any raises, you will be replaced by a lesser paid employee. The company only has a legal obligation to it’s stock holders. To be fiscally sound and make money. Just like any other business. If you are ok with that knowledge and you still want to work for any private corrections company. You will be just fine.
