Being a correctional officer is one of the toughest jobs in law enforcement, and new officers are often nervous when they arrive at their first facility. In this program, a group of seasoned officers share the realities of the job – the importance of asking questions, of being able to admit mistakes and ask for help. They speak of the need to be firm, fair and consistent in the treatment of inmates, while encouraging new officers to develop decision-making and teamwork skills as they learn to handle the requirements of this challenging profession.
