Topic: The Club House / Going from State Prison to County Jail

I worked here in GA for almost a year in an all female facility (state prison) and enjoyed what I did. Even though I was a male officer working at a female facility we still did everything here running dorms, cell checks, etc, etc. Now after about 2 months I was moved to our special management unit and worked there on a lockdown range for the rest of my time at the prison. Became real accustom to working with the worst we had to offer and mental health inmates. I received another civilian job making better money and accepted it in November. Now i’m wanting to go back to law enforcement but I want to go to a county jail where I can move on to patrol later down the road if I wish. My question is what are the biggest differences in working with female and male offenders? I have zero experience with males but by the time I left the prison most the inmates in our facility knew me and respected me for being a fair and consistent officer (something that wasn’t common here). Also just wondering for people who have made the move like this do you enjoy the jail more then the prison?
