Topic: The Club House / Concerned Christians for Inmates

Being a Christian I am all for reaching out to everyone with the gospel message. I’m sure some inmates are sincere. I have spoken to some people from churches who go to institutions as prison ministry volunteers and they have asked me to go. I refused and told them about the predators they were going to try and convert. I then told them about the old expression that the garbage cans outside of prisons are filled with bible’s. The expression on their face said it all.

Topic: The Club House / Newbie Questions

In the federal prisons there are vocational training instructors who teach trades to the inmates and get law enforcement retirement. That is because all staff who work inside of federal prisons also perform policing duties as well, respond to emergencies, make escorted trips when needed, etc,. In the federal system upward mobility is excellent, you can promote up rather quickly if you don’t mind transfering around the country, which is also a plus. I started as an officer and have since worked in the maintenance department, education department, was tdy in the food service department, worked in the construction end of the federal system, and am now a supervisor back in maintenance. I’ve worked in five different locations. I like dealing with the inmates. And when I come to work I never know what to expect. That can be good or bad. The things I don’t like about working in a prison is being totally out numbered. When I was a cop it was me and my partner and we usually was only confronted with one or two bad guys. Working inside my institution there are over 2000 with about 100 staff on day watch and a dozen on evenings and mornings. Don’t worry you’ll get used to it. The best thing about working in the federal prisons is once you have 20 years of service and have reached 50 years of age you are eligable to retire. I never had that in the private sector. Good Luck.
