Marissa, I have work in our County Jail for 27 years. It has gone from ruff to totally intense. It was built for a max of 83 and we run 250 to 297. They have a plan to build a new one in 2017. At this jail we qualify with tasers, pepper spray and guns. We do not wear then in the jail but we are Corrections Deputies and transport inmates to Courts, other jails, do medical/hospital details and various other detail where we must be qualified when doing inmate movements outside of the jail. I did not have any problems with the academy but from new females at our jail they state the push ups or sit ups were the most difficult because they are done the male way and our muscle strength is not as capable for these as the other physical tests. Everyone here excells in one needed skill or another and we all work together as a team to do the impossible. I am proud to work with them all.
