like high school, but with a sense of honor!
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) – Lawton, OK – November 30, 2015
Correct and Secure the facility, offenders, and always safety of the staff. Like the fact that the staff, supervisors really try to work in rotation. The work is horrifyingly scary but also gratifying. Training was so-so, could use some more hands on and technical training, rather than "you will die", "ravaging, brutal, unremorseful beasts are waiting to shank you everyday" kind of speeches, and class discussions. Management, and staff, wow, let's see, FAVORITISM is definitely a HUGE factor in promotions, rotation, overall a major trust issue always which is the most dangerous I believe. Less" high school", more "rehab-reintegration" mindset, would, I believe definitely help their security and support systems. Enjoyable?..... I loved this job!! For the staff that I knew had my six always for sure, and the offenders who reminded me that while there are tremendous dangers we face, walk past every day.... we are ALL still human. mistakes made, miswired brain, misunderstood, abused, neglected, etc. All that has to be done is mutual, personable respect for the human race, other people, and maybe everyone might see a much different world.
Eye Opener, Great training, great excercise, always overtime, incentives, cool co workers, great learning experience.
favoritism, no breaks, free meals!, support systems
