I started my first day as an internship at the Rankin County Sheriff Department and I must say it was a great experience. I worked from 8-5 and saw a lot of good stuff. Definitley going to help me out in my LEO career by being back in the jail all summer learning some of the tricks these guys try to pull.

LOL "ringg..ringgg"


When my life has ended..And my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones..I'll leave there's no doubt
But one thing's for certain...When it comes my time
I'll leave this old world...With a satisfied mind

If I were in charge every police officer would be required to work corrections for at least two years before hitting the streets.  The education is priceless.  Look listen and learn I will help you for the rest of your career.

I second that. The same people that you'll deal with in Jail will more than likely be the same people you'll be arresting out on the streets over and over.

That is what i have been told by every officer who knows what he is talking about. A judge that i know who started off as a police officer insisted that i find an internship where i can be in the jail for a summer so i can learn the tricks of the trade and also learn about what the people do in the jail and respect them. Day 2 was not bad. I am only working till july 31st so i do not know how much responsibility i can actually gain in that short amount of time. There has been talk about rotating me with another guy who is at the dispatch office which i really hope does not happen.

Many Deputies, Sergeants and higher ranking officials where I work at started off as Detention Officers at the Jail before they got promoted. Working at the Jail isn't as bad as many people think it is and is a good learning experience for those starting out in LE. I don't know how big your County is but Fridays and Saturdays are usually filled with fun people coming in, especially during the holidays and now that Summer is upon us, things will only get more exciting on the nightshifts.

Wait until you see them put their own feces in their hair...or swallow razor blades so they can be moved from one tank to another.

You can learn a whole lot in the strip search area.


Had a female once with a derringer in her vagina.


The deputy that brought her in said he then understood why she begged him to stop so she could pee.

To : First Day in the Jail and others who will be there too eventually!


 


In my County, ALL  (county) officers are asked to 'intern' for at least a year and usually two!


It does indeed open your eyes to the 'lows' people will go to.


It CAN be monotenous...... esp. the night shift......... but just like 'the road' no two shifts are alike!


It can be very 'political' , but you can also make life long friends.


the best advice I got was 'trust no one' . I was naive as to that meaning


until I found myself in the position of  having to write an incident report


when I walked in to my post one morning to find 'all' doors were 'unlocked'!


leading to a hallway  that  led directly to the visitors door and the parking lot!


Yes, it was the 'Trustee' pod, but so what?  I called the Rove Officer going off shift


he said "Write it up, and send it to every supervisors box, including the Sheriff!"


I did, but you'll never guess who was the 'bad guy' (girl in my case!) yep, ME!


a liberal female Sgt. called me and  said " hey, you were new once too, you should


have called me first! now you'll be known as a 'snitch'" ! I was dumbfounded, and


said "excuse me Sgt. but I was advised to do this, what if someone had simply


walked away that morning? (evidently no one noticed since it was so early!)


She said "well then it would have been someone else's backside, not yours"!


So I was just supposed to 'ignore'  that every switch was in the OPEN position?


this is the same Sgt. who asked me to testify for her during a harassment


hearing (she was being bullied by another female Lt.!)   I have to say


I told her I would testify for her (I did witness several incidents), but hoped she now knew what it felt


like to be 'bullied'!  she laughed , and said "I get it"


I think this is when I decided this was not the place for me to work!


(and as you can see it wasn't because of the inmates, but the politics!)


but this was just one of several incidents that happened to me in the two years


I was 'in the jail' and they were all from Officers! (political?)


 I don't want to discourage young officers from doing their 'time' at the local


jail, as there is indeed much to be learned...just be as alert to the competitive co-workers


as you are to inmates while you learn!


BTW


I still correspond with some former staff members  via e-mail ten years later!


one of whom recommended this website to me!


(He was also harassed on a reg.basis!) even though he was extremely


good at his job, (he worked booking ) he was constantly the 'brunt' of


jokes, because he WAS diligent in his job!

Been there, seen it. They can be quite creative in turning their feces into "play doh."

Call me cold hearted, but suicides/suicide attempts don't bother me, and rape, 90% of the time its consensual sex, now you just have an inmate crying rape because they got caught.
