I seriously want to stay and be employed in The united states from the time of I’ve been a little whipper snapper!! Right now I have a under graduate degree and I have a Masters diploma in movie creation.

Yes the sound of 22 years without the chance of a promotion doesn’t sound great, you might aswell be one of the inmates lol. Have you tried looking up prisons and just asking them if they have any placements?

Will do

I know stuff happens. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity. It doesn’t seem that moving to the states would be such a difficult thing to do, especially for someone who has a career and a job to go to when he gets here. It’s a huge decision. It will be interesting to know what all you have to go through to get over here, so will you keep us in the loop?

Hmm long story short?Was married to a girl who was born in Canada & raised in Michigan so she knew a lot about visas etc.Now getting divorced from same so had to put emmigration on back burner while I sorted life out.
The job has changed beyond all recognition in UK,not least of which being removing the next rank that I would’ve been promoted to.So the thought of doing another 22 years with zero prospect of promotion does not appeal.Having worked on a 2 year secondment in the carribbean I discovered I preferred living abroad,preferably somewhere sunny. As I’ve been lucky enough to travel extensively in the USA,and liked most of the places I’ve been to it seemed logical to try to move there.
Why did I stop trying?It just seemed that one roadblock after another was being put in my way,I can understand it as this was just after 9/11 but can only hope things have calmed down a little.
Thanks for the websites will give them a try.
Best regards
Dave Butler

I’m impressed that you already had one interview in the States, so wouldn’t it be pretty close to the same criteria for a trip today? Why did you stop after you already went through part of the process? Looks like you already have a lot of the background and legwork done for a new attempt and all you need to do is get new paperwork and transfer the information you had on the old paperwork. What’s holding you back?

In 2001 I had an interview in a prison in Texas,I was offered a job and tried to do all the paperwork but it seemed like you get through one bunch of paperwork only to be confronted by another lot,i.e. fill in all the immigration stuff then you have to satisfy the requirements of the labour board.I guess that’s why immigration lawyers make such a good living lol !
Any suggestions as to how you go about getting a green card without having first secured a job or how you get a job without a green card gratefully recieved.

You will need a Green Card at the very least. To work in any Federal institution you would have to be an American Citizen.

Sorry to hear about your “change in domestic circumstances”. I personally have no idea about immigration, but you can surely get information from either the US or UK embassy over there (I don’t even know about the new rules about visiting Canada or Mexico!). I don’t see any major problems getting a job over here, though. Seems the prison systems are always hiring. The biggest hurdle would be having something definite before you make the move. Looks like there are some good info from earlier posts, too.

Male user db6566 6 posts

I had no responses for a while,then had a change in domestic circumstances so had to concentrate on other things.Now things are all sorted and there is no further any avenue of promotion for me in the UK ,I would once again be very grateful for any assistance or information anyone could give me on making the move to the USA.
Any state,any security category of prison,public or private sector I am still interested in moving ANYWHERE as long as it’s in the USA!

The prestigious Corrections component of the Department of Justice continues to expand during this unstable economic time. The Federal Bureau of Prisons has three new facilities under construction with activation dates that vary within the next 9 months. New medium security level facilities are under construction in McDowell County (Welch), West Virginia; Mendota (Fresno County), California and Berlin (Coos County), New Hampshire.

Remember, prisons are like small cities surrounded by the security of a fence and although, 100% of staff in our institutions are “Correctional Workers First,” there are MORE than just Correctional Officer positions available. We need food service supervisors, warehouse supervisors, accounting technicians, secretaries, Medical Officers, recreation specialists, teachers, Psychologists and case managers to name a few. Approximately 200 new positions to fill at each new location!

To view the Bureau of Prisons recruitment videos visit www.youtube.com/TeamTalentRecruiter. For more up to the minute information, join www.twitter.com/BOPRecruiter! To contact a Team Talent Recruiter, e-mail Talent.Team@yahoo.com and receive a response within 24 hours!
