They are not the same. A C/O handles things INSIDE their respective institutions. They have no powers of arrest. A police officer, Sheriff's Deputy, FBI, SBI, ALE, ATF, Probation/Parole, etc. does have the power to arrest on sight any person who is breaking the law and bring them to a C/O. We are all on the same team and I am quite certain being a C/O is as stressful as some of the situations we find ourselves in. Hope this helps.


You can't cure stupid.
