Quite intense , but rewarding being a Detention Officer.
I worked here for 18 months , it is an interesting job. I treated the inmates like the humans they are , some however were the most hardheaded people I had ever met. There is alot of politics in the job , with certain coworkers that will back you up in a fight/argument and others that will turn and walk away ; leaving you alone with a upset inmate/s. Chose your battles carefully , you can get hurt , and the OC spray won't do a thing to some inmates that love pain. However , the atmosphere is unique , the benefits are worth getting your butt kicked and so is the pay.
