Correctional Officer Lieutenant (Former Employee) –  Jessup, MDNovember 28, 2018
A typical day working for the Department of Public Safety would involve maintaining security for the facility in which offenders are housed by strictly enforcing policies and procedures that are established. Reports and other relevant documents are prepared daily. Staff and offenders are accounted for throughout the day to assure safety of all. Addressing the needs/issues of the residents, visitors, volunteers and the general public is 75% of the job. Completing daily reports and the documentation are all relevant events.
Pros
Paid lunch and benefits such as 20 year retirement option, paid vacation and sick leave
Cons
Staff shortages is the most prevalent issue that the department of public safety is facing.

Office Clerk (Current Employee) –  MarylandOctober 15, 2018
I have worked contractually for 4 years and have been given no hope of becoming a full time permanent employee although my immediate supervisors want it to happen. All decisions are made through HR only and they do not know anything about me regarding work performance. Contractual employees are not given performance appraisals showing their merit.
Pros
friendly people
Cons
no advancement
