Topic: The Club House / The Academy

Well, I think it really depends on what state or company (private) you are going to be working for. I work for the State of Oklahoma, and they do require you to live on campus at academy. For some people, academy was a little tough, but as long as you have common sense, it shouldn’t be a problem. I also asked my friends who work at the private prison here, and they said that they were able to live off campus and that academy was a breeze. I would suggest going for the state job. Most of the time the academys are more structured and will prepare you better for the job. Not to mention the pay and benefits (great if you have children) are better. Good luck in your decision.

Topic: The Club House / Losing control

I’m usually a pretty easy guy to get along with, but NONEYA, you need to wipe your mouth because you’re talking out of your ass. Also, take IllPhillyPhan’s advice and use spellcheck.

Topic: The Club House / Living breathing flesh ?

Mick, that is where our jobs differ, I guess. Even with the inmates that we have in SHU/DU (behind the solid doors), we still have to see flesh and movement. However, I understand now what you mean. Out of curiosity, where do you work?

Topic: The Club House / Living breathing flesh ?

Ok. The two previous posts by Mick and 1265 really concern me. I have been in corrections for about 4 1/2 years, and have been shift supervisor, boot camp instructor, dorm staff, gang intelligence officer, UA officer, STAR team member, and Staff Sgt., have worked in Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Texas Youth Commission, and Oklahoma Department of Corrections. Everywhere I have ever been has been the same policy- You MUST observe flesh and movement. Mick and 1265- If your departments do not have this policy, if I were you I would try to get it changed. If you don’t and someone does die in their sleep (or get murdered by their cellmate and covered up to make it look like they are in bed), you- personally- and your department could be in for a HELL of a lawsuit.

Hny4jc- Keep doing what you are doing. Always observe flesh and movement, no matter how long it takes you. As long as you follow policy and procedure, you are covered. ALWAYS C.Y.A. (cover your ass). The inmates, for the most part, are not new to the system. They know that you have to do your job- that includes counting properly. A suggestion would be to tell the inmate to keep a hand out from under the covers, or keep his head uncovered. If you run into a problem with an inmate (and you will), explain to him why you have to follow policy when counting. If you still have problems, talk to your sgt., lt., or shift supervisor. They should address the issue with the inmate. If the inmate continues to be a problem, write him up for interfereing with a count. Continue to do what you’re doing and good luck!!!

Topic: A Broader View / prison-sanctioned tatoo program for inmates? Good or bad?

This is one of the stupidest ideas I have ever heard of. No more elaboration is needed.
