I have had a rewarding career with the Department of Correction.
Pros: i have learned much and am thankful for the opportunities i have had.
Cons: the negative enviroment of the inmates and the way they sometimes choose to live.
Their generally is not a typical day at the office when dealing with inmates but the reward comes from being firm,fair and consistent with inmates. The same applies in my view, with dealing with staff. We are all on the same team and at the end of a work day this is all that matters. I know that my fellow worker will be there in a crisis and vice versa. I never take pleasure in having to bring someone back to jail, but I realize this is my job, public safety. The most rewarding part of what it is we do is just that, try to protect and serve.
