Corrections Connection: This Week In Corrections


Looking For Advice

>>what's your opinion?

Hey everyone I am new to this site. I am a Corrections officer and glad to have found this site. I am wanting to know if there is any Federal Corrections Officers out there that would be willing to give me some advice as to what to look for when applying to a Federal Prison. I have been trying to apply for the last two years and I can’t seem to get their attention. I have been a CO for the state of new mexico for the last four and feel I have some good experience under my belt. Is there any officers out there that have worked for a federal prison that could give me some tips. What do they look for what can I do to enhance my resume? Any comments would be appreciated.

Thanks. full thread


Why Care for Prisoner’s Healthcare?

By Carl ToersBijns, Deputy Warden of Administration & Operations (Retired)
A recent incident reported by a Phoenix investigative reporter, who received a tip from a prisoner’s family member about the wrongful use of a needle syringe inside a state prison, made the local mainstream news. The reporter revealed poor medical practices as far as “sharp controls” and demonstrated the critical need for needle control within our prisons to prevent exposures to infectious diseases.

This exposure to an infectious disease has been downplayed by the Arizona Corrections Department and only warranted a $ 10,000 dollar fine for not following sound medical standards related to syringe and needle control as well as the use of such instruments. It is exactly this type of lack of concern for the prisoner’s health that impacts our community’s health and public safety daily. full story
