Just caught another CO bringing in crap to inmates.


Drugs, cellphones, and tobacco.


Watch your back out there guys. I suspect that as times get tougher, more of these cases will come to light.

What, the CO likes the people on the inside so much that he wants to "be with them" more than his "friends" on the outside?  Or, is it just that he HAS no friends on the outside?  Whenever someone I've arrested starts with the "favors" requests (i.e. can you cuff me in front, I've gotta pee, can't we just over look this?). . . .my pat line is, "My career, and more to the point DIGNITY/INTEGRITY, is worth more than anything you can offer me, so. . . .NO!".


I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people and I expect the same from them.

We've lost 3 CO's due to being dirty in less than a year.  Like you said times are tough and the business of bringing in contraband can be lucritive.  Lucritive that is until they are caught, an inmate is like a child they take take take and take and the second they think there in trouble they tell all they know.  I will NEVER understand why a proffessionally trained Corrections Officer does not understand that concept.  I have been fortunate to of worked with some great guys during my short CO career and now that I am about to go to LE Academy I will take my lessons learned with me.  Guys/Girls if you don't take anything away from this post or this entire topic atleast listen to this, Show up to work when you are scheduled, Treat everyone with respect, Have your fellow Officers backs and Stick strictly to your facilities Policy and Procedure Manual. Doing these things may not make you the most popular Officer on deck but it will save your ass in the long run.

Damn it seems everytime I come back from a vacation I always hear of the CO's that got "escorted off the hill" for bringing in contraband.  The latest was coffee and tabacco.  Coffee, really???  I think at my prison we have lost about 4-5 crap CO's and even a few non-uniform staff.  I know times are tough but there are better ways to deal with hard times than to violate your honor and integrity.
