I want to thank BulletToothTony, The Shape and pjgibby for their input, in order to speak that way about what they do and did as Correctional Officers, they are truly hero's on a daily basis. Unless you do this type of law enforcemente work it is very hard to explain because you do a little of everything from putting out fires and saving lives to using deadly force. Fact of the matter is, when you can walk down range and not need to impose your authority you got the respect you have earned and that is not easy behind the wall. Just remember a convict is a convict from the first day to the last and they will get you if they can. BE ALERT!! STAY SAFE!! WATCH THE MOVEMENT ON THE YARD!!

Finishing up my 11th year in Monmouth County. Days like today, glad I stuck with it and didn't transfer to a local PD. Know why? It's freaking cold out!

Good to see some fellow brothers here. 6 years CT DOC. 3 years as a tactical officer, currently an impact/chemical weapons operator. Hoping to get on our K9 team in the future, just finished the testing process. Definitely not an easy field, we are the "forgotten cops". I currently provide armed security for our adminstration building but I came from the largest county jail in Connecticut. Everyone stay safe.

Put in an application for NHP, hopefully I can get in there! NDOC has been decent but my end goal is to be a trooper.

Was a yard officer for 3 years split between Kentucky DOC and Wyoming DOC. Both medium security facilities but worlds apart in terms of... well, just about everything.

Miss working with a lot of people, but administrative issues and politics have turned it into a shit job IMO.

Edit-

I probably got to see the best and some of the worst of corrections during the NTC riot in '09. The officers get terrible pay and training (IIRC my take home $$ was ~1500 a month and that's with no health insurance!) but they looked out for each other, especially when the SHTF that evening. Nothing short of a friggin miracle everyone made it out alive.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMlwROCuxNk

The comments in the above video @ 1:25 pissed me off, as they were totally false. The majority of our radios were some shitty, ancient GE PCS units that more likely than not, didn't f*^#ing work. There was so little equipment available I thought it was like a scene out of "Enemy at the Gates" (where the Russians are landing on the beach) because we'd go in groups of three officers. One would carry the radio, another would carry a set of keys, and the third officer wouldn't have anything. It was ridiculous.

And the icing on the cake... prior to this riot where they burned down the prison, they were allowed cigarettes and matches. A smoking ban? Nope. After the riot we had to light the cigarettes for the inmates.

Looking Forward to using my MA DOC paycheck on some mods for my stock 2014 SR5 Taco. Would like to start with getting what I need to make it TRD OffRoad and then continue from there...I'm fresh out of the academy working third shift in an institution that is classified as Medium but it's nothing more than a minimum. Good to see other COs/Leos on the forums. Stay Safe.

Mine is the same, supposed to be medium but it's a minimum with more fences and razor wire.

I'm thinking I'll stick with corrections for another year instead of testing for NHP. I might try to go local in the county jail since I already have my cat 3 though.
