Topic: A Broader View / HomelessnessÂ….a problem for released offenders?

I was just going through these topics, and this one really kind of ticks me off.. I will be starting work in Texas in January, and personally I think it is ridiculous that we are worried about homeless releases, when you look at the system down here, and it looks like there are going to be more homeless COs than anything. I didnt know it at the time I signed the contract, but there is NO housing availible where I have been posted. Until I can find a place down there, I will be driving 5 hours, and showering in a truck stop, sleeping in my car. This isnt just a problem where I am going either. One of the main retention issues Texas has is that where the prisons are located, there is no housing in or around that area, and no dorms for the COs. Before we worry about the people getting out, lets take care of our own.

Topic: The Club House / Looking for info on Texas training academy

Thats cool…I will be in the Dec. 4th class too, except at the Gatesville unit. I am definitely looking foward to the experience, and have been practicing with the chemical agents so I know what I am in for. It really suprised me that you can order the police grade tear gas online for about 14 dollars a can. Just out of curiousity what unit are you going to be at after training? I will be at Lynaugh. Its going to be a hell of a drive from home, and unfourtanately I cant find a place to live down there…the place is dead.. So if anyone reads this and knows of a rental available, let me know..Thanks for the response…

Topic: The Club House / Wondering

Does anyone actually post anything in here anymore, or is it just a dead thread? Just wondering because of my last post getting no responses..

Topic: The Club House / Looking for info on Texas training academy

I know this subject probably comes up alot, but I am going to be attending the Pre Svc. Trainiing Academy in the beginning of December, in Texas, and I was looking to get some idea of what is going to happen. I know I can do this job, and am excited about it, but on the other hand I am 26 with a family. So I guess another question to the post is “Is the job going to work with the family”. I will be at a facility where I will be working 4 on 4 off, so I am looking foward to the weekends. Anyway, I guess I am signing up for the unknown. Any posts would be helpful. Thanks.
