Is it really as negative as it sounds?

>>what's your opinion?

irish assassin:
By ALL means, find a hobby or something completely unrelated to corrections to occupy your free time. Reading, fishing, golf, walking, etc… anything that seperates you the person from you the officer. Destressing after work is just as important as having the right mindset at the beginning of shift. If you have a family of your own then make time to spend with them as yourself, not as an officer. Family and friends are the best support system around but always remember they are there to help you not to hurt you. It’s easy to bring the stress home and that just wrecks havoc on your personal life. I know from experience So long as you can find the best way for you to keep the mental grind of the job from wearing you out.

For years, Higher Education had difficulty recognizing women into the criminal justice scholarly ranks. full story
