Topic: The Club House / Just starting out

Thanks for the congrats and the words of wisdom. On my first day, my favorite word was “no”, because the inmates were really trying to test me and my knowledge. I just stuck to the letter of the law (no pun intended). I also noticed that there is a lot of “gray area” where personal improvisation is key. Thanks again all!

Thanks Mick,

This forum has really helped to educate me and to alleviate some of my fears. The comraderie is something that really appeals to me as I have been treated like…well…crap in my other, thankfully, former profession. Thank you once again for your warm welcome to our world.

Thanks Sgt. NO for the words of wisdom. I have a lot of learning to do, but absorb I will. All the best to you.

Hi All,
I got the official word today that my first day on the job (starting the academy) will be August 3rd. It has been a year in the making, so as many of you have said , persistence and patience has paid off.

I just received word that I passed my oral interview and am moving on to the background check (papers submitted) and then to the physical tests. So, I’m in the final stages of the hiring process. I’ll keep you guys and gals posted as to my progress.

Thanks Mick!
I appreciate your reply and info. It’s a waiting game for me now. The interview board (two officers) said that I would contact me as to their decision either way. One officer who was on the interview board upon escorting me out of the facility said "For what it’s worth, you did very well. So I’m pretty excited to hear back.
All the best!

I just completed the written test and oral interview for an entry level Correction Ofiicer position at a New Hampshire county jail. I am a college graduate, have a squeaky clean background (really, just one speeding ticket in 2008), but no experience in law enforcement or corrections. I have always been interested in and intrigued by corrections, and now I am going for it after 18 years as a freelancer in the television industry. For those of you who have gone through or are officers on the hiring board, what are my chances to secure this position?
Thanks all!!!!!
