Topic: The Club House / Living breathing flesh ?

By the way, I did look for breathing and any uncovered part of the body that I could see when I was a line officer. However, I did unwrap mummies and make sure they were alive. Sounds like there needs to be a facility wide ban on totally covering up. I am now a shift supervisor, and I do check my officers from time to time to see if they are properly observing their inmate.

Topic: The Club House / Living breathing flesh ?

Sounds like some of the experienced officers need to lose the complacency and remember what they were taught. While it is generally not a good practice to intentionally agitate the inmate population, you still should properly check your inmates. Remember, integrity is doing the right thing, even under peer pressure.

Topic: The Club House / Public or Private?

I currently work for a public agency, but did some time at a CCA facility. I found that the private companies perform well in certain areas, such as cost management and inmate programs. However, I found that the private companies often pay less that public agencies, and they have major problems with staff retention and quality. Also, the companies are not real big on defensive tactics training, and really are squeamish about justified UOF. The companies will fire you just to save face. Remember that most larger public agencies have some form of civil service protection, while you are employed at will with a company. Just my two cents worth.

Topic: The Club House / Do you belong to a Union?

Here in Nashville, the SEIU just started representation for our officers. They seem to be accomplishing a lot in the area of employee morale. However, they are meeting with skepticism from the old guard (5+yrs officers). I am in management, but I hope they keep the representation.

Davidson County TN Corrections could sure use you. We are hiring for a January cadet class.

Topic: The Club House / screwed up security

Report it immediately. And keep bringing it up until someone does something about it. That is dangerous!

Topic: The Club House / Women working in Corrections

I have several female officers under my supervision, and I will say that they are some of the best officers I have.
