Corrections Officer, Mitchells, VA - September 16, 2017
If you're looking for great experience to jumpstart a career in Law Enforcement, this is a good place to begin. Unfortunately, other than that and the benefits that are offered (perfect for families, I am unable to say much else positive of this job/career. Overall work morale is low, and it does not seem to be a great deal of support from overhead. There is a fairly high turnover rate which leads to said overhead to have a "they'll fix this somehow" attitude. The Healing Environment ideology is not regularly practiced by most, which is unfortunate. I do wish the pay was a bit more comparable to the work that is done, however this is the same throughout many DOC institutions.
