Prison Guard | The SECRET To The Profession!
Prison Guard On Duty
So you’re thinking about being a Prison Guard? Well before jumping into the corrections profession, every future prison guard should ponder on the reasons why they want to enter the profession. Let’s face it, we need people to manage the criminals who break the laws within our society.
Working as a Prison Guard has its benefits. The starting salary and benefits is okay for a man or woman just entering the work force without a college degree. The sick time, paid time off, holiday time pay adds up quickly if you don’t abuse it.
As a “Prison Guard”, you will have a huge responsibility to always be professional. Once you deviate away from being a professional prison guard while on duty, you will actually make your job much more difficult! The inmates will see that and they will talk about that. Don’t think just because you’re in charge of your cell block you can act like a total ass to those men. Being a prison guard is not that physical (except when you’re in a use of force) it’s mostly mental. I would recommend finding other blogs and books on the subject of the corrections profession.
My name is Darrell Hall, I was once a Prison Guard for the Texas Department of Corrections in the early nineties while in college.
I chose to pursue a job as a Prison guard at that time because as a 20 year old, this was a perfect job for me while in college working on my degree plan that eventually lead me into the medical profession. The community I lived in at the time had four different prison units in our county. These units were the Coffield Unit, Michael Unit, and the Beto One and Beto Two Units. While living in Palestine Texas I was assigned to the Coffield Unit. Being a Prison Guard at that unit was my favorite while working at TDC.
Prison Guard Secret?
So what’s the secret to the prison guard profession? Always being a professional and the ‘Firm But Fair’ rule. That’s pretty much it! Well and constantly improving your communication skills is a plus too.
I can’t stress enough to always be a professional while on duty. The training classes taught us to be ‘firm but fair’. As a young man in my early twenties, I had authority over hundreds of inmates, and my age played a huge roll in if I were to get any respect from the men much older than me. Most didn’t like to take orders from a young kid (as they were thinking), but I made sure that I tried my best to maintain my professionalism as a Prison Guard at all time. Not being too ridged or cold, and not being a push over either. You will have to be somewhat flexible and make decisions that will never breach your code of professionalism. The rule that really helped me was the ‘Firm But Fair’ rule. You will not go wrong if you will keep that simple rule in mind when you’re on duty. I only worked for the prison system for three years, just long enough to finish all of my prerequisites for the degree plan I was pursuing.
