Trying to develop the security mindset to become a Correctional Officer
|nate092979 1 post||
I have worked at my correctional facility for three years as a warehouse worker in Washington State. In that time I have learned that most inmates care only about themselves and I need to have my guard up lest they deceive me or worse. I am not afraid to say “no” to anyone and if people (inmates or staff) give me a hard time I give it to them back without taking things personally. I try to be mindful of looking around while I am at the workplace and not walk so fast (difficult for me to do sometimes because I worked in retail for ten years prior and as a warehouse worker it’s fast paced).
