Topic: Security Central / Education for Correctional Officers

Often, I ponder on where the priority and importance lies for correctional officers. As a veteran in the field, and knowledgeable of the laws and policies that govern, I wonder what correctional officers think about the role of continuing and advanced education.

Like the majority of Law Enforcement, correctional officers’ wear and tear on their body, can limit or create difficult to job performance in the later years of their life. What and Where does the correctional officer go after his or her service is complete. Retirement has become almost obsolete as inflation and insurance cost rise, the need to bring in additional income is evident.

I have been fortunate to continue and advance my education throughout my career and to find areas that are almost hidden to correctional officers to offer a very bright future. It is my initiative to go further that resulted in me owning my own company, and the decision has been one of the best I’ve made in my life.

While to each their own, I wonder if correctional officers really understand the talent and wealth of knowledge they posses and how it is needed. If at all possible investigate in continuing your educational and broadening your horizons. There are many, many opportunities that exist, and believe it or not, yearn for our experience and expertise.

Topic: Security Central / Best way to handle unruly inmate

Hello,

new to the forum, but read through over the past few weeks and feel like home. I have worked corrections 20+ years, and been extremely successful at de-escalating situations. In short, I have found one simple rule to guide me, never go in without room to modify your intentions. So many times I have witnessed others stick to an agenda just to come back in stating they needed to find another way. Stay open, don’t go textbook, I know, with a Masters all the info in the textbooks don’t compare to some real life “know how”.
