oh yea… and for the asshole that thinks women dont belong in male prisons…. kiss my ass you backwoods, 1950’s re-run! I belong wherever I damn well please! As does every other hard working woman in todays society! I would back up ANY officer…. even one like you…. and would do it because it is my JOB… and because when push comes to shove we can only depend on each other for safety and protection. Too bad you dont look at things that way instead of seeing me as just a pair of boobs intruding on your MALE turf!! I guarantee you…. if you were getting shanked.. you would be damn glad us WOMEN didnt run away and came to help you…you wouldnt give a damn WHO was pulling that inmate off you!! Male or Female… we all have to work together and build a stronger community and backbone or we ALL fail!!

Topic: The Club House / Women working in Corrections

I am a female CO working in a max sec all male offender prison. The best advice I have been given applies to ALL CO’s and that is ALWAYS be FAIR FIRM AND CONSISTANT. The inmates will not always like your decisions but if they see you doing the same for every inmate they will learn to respect you. The only way to get any respect in this line of work is to EARN it…. male or female… these guys will spot weakness and indecisiveness a mile away!! They got where they are by preying on those weaker than them and they will continue to do so when given the chance. Be prepared to back up your decisions by whatever means necessary… whether that be talking or action. The other advice I would give is this…. whatever type of CO your gunna be… a hardass…. or a softie…. whatever it is… be that CO ALL the time… not just some days… not just when your having a bad day… not when your just in a good mood!! IF your a hardass.. by the book.. type of CO (which I happen to be) then you gotta be that way every day.. all day… no exceptions!!

OH yea.. one other thing…. dont let these guys get to ya… they will call ya every name in the book… they will try to sweet talk you…they will try to you talk about your family or home life ect…. remember who your dealing with.. and never forget where your at… they will use whatever you give them against you the first chance they get…they have nothing to do all day but figure out ways to improve their lives and get back at those of us who are keeping them “down” or “locked up” or whatever. Since most of those I deal with are lifers they have NOTHING to lose by playing whatever games they want…. what am I gunna do… take their TV away??? Throw them in the hole??? Big whoop… once you have been locked up for a while and know your never getting out.. who cares? If they kill you… what is the state gunna do?? Give them ANOTHER life sentence?? Just keep your chin up… you eyes OPEN… and your hand on your OC and assist button!! You will do fine!! Once the other CO’s see you mean business.. your not gunna run away…and you have a good head on your shoulders they will lighten up on you and embrace ya as one of them!!
