    From the grave! I agree with you 100%, sad thing is you'll find the same slugs in LE and any other job. Good luck in the academy.

    First off, sorry for bringing up an old thread.

    All I got to say is I'm in the police academy now and when I got hired I told myself "I will never go back to corrections". Very tuff job. I know some great correctional officers and I know many correctional officers that are "slugs". Nothing but respect for those that go into a jail/prison and actually perform their daily duties.

    Peace!

    Never heard of him jamming anyone, either. He'd be in the rear of 002 and saw us sans vest, or no seatbelt on, never said anything but "Hi Guys" to us.

    Actually he did and he was almost always on the street. I know what kind of LT he was in PHN but I cannot imagine him an Inspector, he wasnt about jamming cops up

    Yeah, JB. He was a Lt. in 002 before he retired, or was guest a lot in 002. He was an Inspector for a bit also. Not a bad guy, He use to run all over. I met him when he was a Sgt in PHU and I was in 002.
    Wondered who had the "Squad" with blue and red lights on it.

    I remember a "robo-jailer" years ago almost always looking for things to do in regards to local law enforcement. For example, when he was hired for the County he was sworn in as a Deputy sheriff assigned to the jail and all the extra responsibilities. At that time the jail was staffed by road Deputies who ****ed off the Sheriff somehow. But it was a rather small operation at the time. This particular Officer would try to stop and "assist" patrol on traffic stops etc. At some point in the 80s or early 90s the title Deputy was exchanged for Corrections Officer including a split in FOP units. This eliminated SLEP pension, powers of arrest, and off duty carry. Basically in what I gather, the states attorney and Sheriff of the time wanted to save money and really didn't care much for Corrections. The only time i'd offer assistance is if a cops life was in danger or I was asked to help. The street is not my turf and I wouldn't get in the way like the guy I'm speaking of. I don't think there are any cops that would run into my jail and attempt to bark orders at inmates. It isn't in their job description. Nor is me doing the same on the street.

We get in it and the car goes all over my old neighborhood until the chased veh. tries to make an alley and hits a garage. Guy and gal in the car are put in cuffs and my partner and I ask, "What Dept. are you with?" to the guy in the Chevy. He says "County." Well, what's up with this? "I was chasing them for shoplifting, Thanks," as he starts to get in his unmarked Chevy. "Whoa, hold the phone, where are you going?" "Oh, I'm off duty, working at a grocery store. This is my personal car." Sorry, Charlie, this is your mess you started. He wasn't handing this clusterFck to us. We took our cuffs off the "offenders" and left. Have a beat car and your bosses figure this crap out.

    These are the Correction guys that some coppers have a problem with. When they think it's like TV Police with all the car chases and shootouts and then hand it to the Police with a "Book 'em, Danno."

    What I never understood is the animosity between CC Corrections and CCSPD, since they worked the jail before their phone call came through to make them CCSPD. Almost like some of them want to show everyone "Look at me, I have way more clout than you do."
    You sure it wasnt a certain CPD LT from PHN????

    I have always had my hat off to the corrections officer. The bottom line is they do a job that I know I cannot do and you will never hear me complain. Talk about not forgetting where you came from I had a situation a few years ago when I assist the CCSPD on a possible burglary in progress. Their dispatch said they were a ways out but we arrived at the same time. We entered the residence and announced .....there was no answer. While clearing the residence a subject emerged from a bedroom. The CCSPD officer immediately challenged and said who are you. The subject puffed his chest and said I aint got to tell you sh...! Before the subject could finish his sentence the CCSPD officer clearly had a flashback to his CCDOC days and proceeded to "instruct" the subject on the logic behind being respectful to the police. Bad guy went to Markham, end of story. The morale of the story is you can take the CO out of the jail but you cannot take the jail out of the COP.

    Actually, I think this discussion was wayyy over due on this message board. It has been peaceful for way to long.

    P.s. Just out of curiosity, how difficult is it to get on CPD these days?
