Productive agency providing a safe environment for local communities
Parole Officer II (Current Employee) –  Little Rock, ARNovember 30, 2015
A typical work day for me would include meeting with offenders to review their file, any changes in their life that may have occurred, checking on their supervision fee balance, drug testing, making referrals for GED, Mental Health, Substance Abuse, etc., conducting home visits, conducting parole revocation hearings, transporting offenders, meeting and collaborating with other staff members and writing notes and reports. I have learned a vast amount of information since being in this position and have gained pertinent knowledge that will help me when working with and counseling clients in the future. The most enjoyable part of my job is contributing to community safety and helping most offenders transition into being productive members of society.

Extremely stressful. Very poor upper management
Lieutenant (Former Employee) –  NWACC Unit - Fayetteville ARDecember 2, 2014
Short staffed is the normal. Rotating shifts. You get two weekends off every five weeks. If you are a female and work in a female unit you are subject to be called in on a moments notice for ANY SHIFT. If you are called and don't call back you will be written up and/or terminated. Under-paid, the starting rate of pay is the lowest correctional pay in Arkansas corrections. You are required to be at work regardless of the weather, you will be wrote up and/or terminated if you don't report for work on a snow day. You do not get breaks as normal work places provide, it is written in the policy like this. Be for warned, the burn out rate for the Department of Community Corrections is extremely high. Also, upper management will dig into your personal life, your Facebook account will be watched. People have been terminated from the NWA unit for their Facebook page.
