    Where in SFL?
    In law enforcement, the customer is ALWAYS wrong.

    In God we trust. Everyone else is run through NCIC.

    Sometimes there is justice. Sometimes there is just us.

    I'd rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6.

      I took the job. Mainly because I need a job, not because I really want to work in the jail. However, I will continue to apply with other agencies in Florida and will be gone at the drop of a hat if offered a job on the road. I hate to be that way, but my heart lies on the road, not in the jail. I figure if I can't get a job elsewhere within in 18 months, I can then start applying to the road within the same agency.

        Make the best of it, and you will learn a lot from working in the jail. I don't know how FL works, but here in MA, just about every LE/corrections job has reciprocity with retirement systems, so you can roll over your time in the jail towards your pension.

          That's the one good thing with this job. Pay, benefits, etc... are exactly the same as if I was on the road, to include retirement. Plus, as far as I know, my retirement with transfer to any other agency within the state.
