My Personal Prison

It has been awhile since I have written.  A lot has happened since my last post, and I feel like I have been trapped in my own personal prison.  I am stuck in a tiny, four walled room, with no escape.  Except instead of being able to get my hour of the cell, I am…

Sex&Staff

Staff try to hook up with other staff constantly, we have already discussed that.  However, something that is incredibly unfortunate that happens way too often, is staff and offender.  Here is why that is ridiculous and unsafe.  1.  You are in prison, it is dirty. 2. Offenders live, eat, and everything else with other offenders,…

Trafficking

Trafficking is when any staff member, contractual or not, brings in anything for an offender for monetary or personal gain.  Giving an offender a piece of gum is considered trafficking and will get you terminated.  A piece of gum sounds harmless sure, but it can jam cell doors or cause other potential problems.  However, there are…

Prison Reform for the Better

The eighth amendment is supposed to protect offenders, staff, citizens from cruel and unusual punishment.  This includes hazardous living conditions.  The prisons here, need to do a giant reform, not just for living conditions but all around.  The word prison should bring fear to those who break the law, now it is considered a joke. …

Ignorance is not Bliss

Recently, the prison I am at now, had a little bit of an issue.  An offender was reported to have escaped from the facility and was not able to be located on the grounds.  Okay, fine.  Now this prison has huge barbed wire, electric fences and towers.  Plus it would have been really hard to miss…

Suicide&Corrections

The Female Officer

The question I get asked all the time is why would you want too work in a maximum security men's prison?  Well honestly, as a female, I definitely know that I would never want to work within the walls of a women's prison, especially after hearing way too many horror stories.  Another thing people like…

Family In Blue

Even though working in a prison is not an ideal career choice for most, it is not all bad.  At the prison I was assaulted in, I grew to love my co-workers.  They became like a second family to me, and they were there with me almost every step of the way.  Checking on me,…

Lockdown

The department of corrections that I work for, as well as many others has different rules and regulations that they have to follow.  There are three reasons the facility I worked in played a role in how my assault took place.  They violated their own procedures and policies which put their staff in danger.  Firstly,…

The Fateful Fifth

I know that some people would read this and ask what did I expect to happen...or why would a young girl work in a prison?  Well it was my desire to have a career in law enforcement that drove me to the prison system, and I expected that the prison would run their facility based…
