Just wondering if we have any Philly C/O's on here ? My cable company carries a local Philly station, there's this ambulance chasing lawyer advertising how if you were strip searched in one of Philly's jails, that you are due a $3000.00 settlement. Yes boys and girls it pays to be a dirt bag criminal.


Standard procedure in this state, strip all, are we next to get sued because some jerk with outstanding traffic warrants is upset about someone seeing his willy ?


We have no county/city lockups here, if you get arrested you come to state prison, held as a detainee/held in the detainee section of the prison untill convicted.

Well cplski, I don't know about you, but we are getting sued in NJ, in our jail. I don't know how much, but we are able to search indictable only, non indictable are not allowed to be strip searched.

It is like that now in Delaware if you dont have drug charges or been convicted of drug charges or big  crimes you cant be searched

They are currently suing us for doing mass strip searches and stating that the manner in which we strip them (convicted felons) is inhumane.

Unless you are stripping them with a flame thrower this is nonsense.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this all stems from a court decision in New York. Not quoting but have heard that unless it's an inditable offense they cannot be stripsearched upon entry. As far as I know this is only at the county level, or anywhere that might accept new offenders.


I brought an extra can of whoop ass just in case!

Don't worry about the law suit.  It's better to worry about being safe and no drugs or weapons make it into the institution.  You did your job. If the agency or insurance company want to dish out 3K instead of fighting it, it not our problem.

I believe it. I have several COs in my Guard unit and none of them are happy with their jobs, all of them want to make the switch over to peace officer. I take my hat off to COs, I think they have it worse than cops do...for less pay on top of it...

It's the year of the hug-a-thug. Funny how when any federal legislature goes out that says "inmate, convict etc" the state will break it's back to change policy even though it doesn't pertain to us but if something changes for the benefit of staff they try their hardest to keep of from having it. I guess the admin want to keep inmate morale high and staff morale low.

Definitly seeing the hugs more this year than before. Administration thinks it's easier to give them what they want rather than do the right thing. For example the jail sup. granted special visits fo an inmate because his kids are in school now. I got to thinkin so are everyone elses kids. Are we gonna start making special considerations for other inmates too? Let's make my job harder than it already is. Plus our visiting hours accomodate this already with the current visiting schedules. It almost feels like inmates get treated better than I (the employee) does. The only difference is I get to go home at night.
