DO & DON'TS of a new Shift Supervisor working in a Female prison
|azcorrections 7 posts
working with female inmates is so much more different then dealing with males..they are as manipulative if not more. they are more emotional, and are very touchy feely type individuals. Unlike the male inmates who have the machismo thing going on, the females are more family oriented, they some that play the part of mom, dad, and the the kids. they are are by far very slick, and usually you will have relationships several going on…most of the time you won’t catch it, but you know it’s happening. their issues are generally much differnt then men..more medical issues, family issues, drama, where as the men, have an issue they’re gonna handle it, their way, usual assaulting someone, it’s physical, not to say the women won’t be, but it’s more boo hooing, and and emotional roller coaster..your approach,and understanding and how you handle the women is different, men won’t come to you and say..“hey co i need to talk” . Advise for the men… yes be careful, annouce man on the run, in the pod, whatever your set up is.

5Yr Alabama State Corrections Officer at male prison, just promoted to SGT at Female prison…any advise/suggestions and experiences strongly welcome.
Keep hearing, “Be careful”…“I won’t work there, from fellow male officers”. I have shared with my wife, that as supervisor, most of my shift time will be spent in the supervisor office..unless there is a request for officer assistance. I’m a professional officer and sexually focus…An inmate is an inmate?? Expect to make Lieutenant out of this tour in approx 3 yrs.
I START IN 5 DAYS.
