Topic: The Club House / Inmate entitlement!?!?

I’ve only been in the Virginia DOC for 6 months and the level of catering to inmates(Offenders in Virginia) is horrible. On my second day of being a certified officer, I lost all respect for this agency. We have a major problem with getting our 5am kitchen workers out of my building on time. They refuse to get up and dressed in a timely manner, which was holding up our 530am kitchen count. Their reasoning was the control booth officers didn’t wake them up early enough by shaking there doors. Which is not the duty of the control officers per DOC policy.

While escorting my responsible workers to the kitchen i was met on the boulevard by the perimeter supervisor who sent me back to my housing unit to get the stories of those who choose not to show up. Upon getting to my housing unit i had to stop my building supervisor escorting the offenders who thought time doesn’t apply to them. I informed my supervisor that kitchen count has already stared and they need to return to there housing units per SGT. ####.

My building SGT then proceeded to tell these inmates, who were 30 minutes late, that “This is my failure and the failure of my officers. We failed you and i’m going to fix this. You did nothing wrong and i’m going to fix this with your supervisor.”
