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.
