Topic: The Club House / Taking Officer Exam

Subject: Captain's Exam Message: I am a Lt. for the NYSDOCS and am looking for an online studying partner for the upcoming captain's exam. Any DOC'S employee interested? Point of Contact: Scott A. Renshaw NYS Dept. of Correctional Services USA srenshaw@twcny.rr.com Response: Captain's Exam > what is that??? In the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections Captain's are not promoted by exam > they are promoted by who the favorite is at the time. It would be nice to see promotions made base on exams, then maybe we would see some Captains that are actually QUALIFIED!

Topic: The Club House / Starting Career in Corrections

I have over 32 years in the field. The stress of the job is not quite what some make it. It helps if you share you daily experiences with others. Inmates for the most part will recognize your authority... be yourself. Inmates will know your new, don't pretend your not. Ask questions, find a mentor and someone you want to take after, but as stated earlier be yourself. If you tell an inmate you'll get back with them, do so. If you don't know, admit it... they respect that more than they do phoniness. Good luck! David Rivas

Topic: The Club House / Starting Career in Corrections

I have a question for the C.O. veterans out there. Since I have been thinking of a career in corrections and I wanted to know how CO's deal with stress and does the prison culture spill over in their family life? I have been reading some statistics that for some CO families their were problems with alcohol, domestic abuse, and so on.

Topic: The Club House / Women working in Corrections

I would like to find information/help on how to cope with being a woman detention officer in an all male facility. Needless to say I have some special concerns and issues that a male officer would not encounter. My co-workers and administrative staff are supportive, but I need to find a way to deal with inmates that think that because I am a woman they don't need to listen to my instructions.....the same instructions that any male officer would give them. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Topic: Security Central / In-house crime scene preservation team

We are currently involved in attempting to create and in-house crime scene preservation team. We have a population of approx 300 inmates and will be moving to a new facity this year that will double that number. Can anyone offer guidance on procedures, policy etc to get one on the road. The administration is amenable to allowing this as we are all certifed peace officers in the facility. This would alleviate tying up a road patrol deputy or detective. For private communication use blai@co.ulster.ny.us (working hours) or wlai_co_ulster_ny_us@yahoo.com (anytime) Thanks.

Topic: Health & Wellness / Prenatal classes for inmates

I am a nurse at a regional jail and occasionally we have a female that comes to us pregnant. I am working on setting up some type of prenatal classes for these inmates. Right now they are sent out to the OB clinic at the local hospital but they do not receive any type of prenatal education. I am looking for some ideas from anyone that provides this type of service to female inmates. Thanks in advance.

They are considered contraband where I work and they are not allowed. If we find them we confiscate them.

Topic: Security Central / Dew rags

Dew Rags are not permitted while inmates are in our county jail. They are not to be worn anytime during the day while they are to be in their uniform. Dew Rags can make major headaches in a county jail in my opinion. A lot of them have knots in the back and could make it easy to conceal their contraband.

Topic: Security Central / Dew rags

I work in a juvenile facility in Indiana. Our kids are allowed to order the dew rags off of commissary. They are only supposed to wear them to sleep in - not during the day. Most of the time we don't have problems with them. However, after reading a couple of the other posts I can see how there could be issues with hiding weapons or other contraband in the knots. Misty

I would like to speak with anyone who has a written search policy that addresses searching women who wear veils for religious reasons. Since housing Immigration inmates, this has become a sensitive issue. If you have a policy you can share please email me a copy. Thank You
