My dad-- a recently retired DOC Lt-- told me when I started working corrections, "If an inmate has something coming to him, give it. Otherwise be polite, be alert, and stay in your lane."

I feel like it was a pretty comprehensive guide to working in corrections in one tidy statement--in addition, of course, to "Put in your 8 and hit the gate; Don't take that mess home with you."

Sadly, some of the other gems of advice he likes to dispense are a bit off colour for this board, lol.

I don't know how common it is, but a gal I went to school w/ got involved with a winner. She was maybe 5 yrs older than me, but it was a small town. Her brother was in my class in HS, and her sister was 3 yrs ahead of me in the same college. We rode together on occasion because school was 3 hrs away from home.

Anyway, the gal in question got into a relationship with this animal and later (after she was fired and he was released) lured another guy over to her place. Her boyfriend was laying in wait and then killed him and they disposed of the body. Crazy. I'm not sure if she's still in jail; I think he was sentenced to life but not 100%

Holy crap. I've joked that if you want to kill a person, ask a nurse how. If you want to hide a body, ask a cop where. I imagine a corrections nurse might be talented at both. lol

I noticed a lot of these posts refer to a woman working in corrections getting sucked in by a prisoner....just wanted to throw in there that male correctional employees are just as likely to get sucked in.

I know someone who worked at a women's correctional facility...ended up getting an inmate pregnant. Lost his wife, his kid, his job and his freedom for a while. Also came to find out the inmate had AIDS. And his relationship went on with that particular one for months before it was exposed. Devastated his entire family, and because of the timing, the baby had to be tested as well. Luckily, no one showed positive.

No kidding! To clarify, this woman wasn't a nurse. She was a CO, not far out of school either.
