    Oh, now you're just stereotyping. I have 10 tattoos that are all black and ive never been in jail or prison, on the wrong side that is.

    I did 18 mos w/ NCDOC (6 mos at a road camp & 12 at Central Prison Raleigh - which is where I spent my 21 birthday). After going back to school & getting my BS I went to work for the Feds as a CO & worked for them the next 27 years. That includes 7 years at FCI Butner, 3 years at USP Marion & then the final 17 at the Central Office in DC.

    UncleDannie and ZombieShoot, Reading your posts was like sitting in the Principles of Direct Supervision class I went to after basics.

    Very good information.

    One last piece of advice for anyone going into the LEO business, street or wire, remember that your family, spouses and friends didn't join up with you. Leave the lingo at work. You will find yourself talking code, which shuts others out of the conversation. Try not to analyze your brother-in-law tattoos, nor what your Aunt has been up to at night. Realize that after 8-10 hours with your 'clients', you WILL need to decompress. Do not try and deal with family issues as soon as you walk through your home door, unless you're just looking to get divorced or disinherited from your family. And alway, always remember not to take your job or yourself to seriously, because none of us is getting out of this world alive anyway.

    I have worked as a CO at our local county jail (around 160 beds) since August 2008. Uncle Dannie and ZombieShoot have some great advice. They are spot on and I wish I could have read it earlier.

    I heard a good quote that made me think of this thread. While talking about the CO's, the inmate said "they just work here, but we live here." Stay on your toes, and best of luck.

    I worked in the jail for 16 months, after being hired as a deputy sheriff. You are so correct, it taught me the art of being able to talk to people. That has served me well. In some 30 years, the only fights I had were in the jail. Those were with people that due to mental illness or drugs, I couldn't get through to. A thing that sticks in my craw, correctional officers who deal with the worst offenders on a daily basis are not permitted to be armed outside the jail. I have met some I arrested while shopping, I was armed. It isn't right that correctional officers who meetup with their former charges are unarmed. This only affects non-sworn correctional officers, but they should have the right to be armed outside of the jail.
