      Just taking a stab in the dark here-where do you live? If close to Orange county I would think you might want to stay where you are. Unless the money was much better w/ the state (which I highly doubt) Why would you risk the possibility of being assigned to a SP in Erie County?

        I don't have experience with NY, but in NJ the Counties were generally the better places to work. State had the plus of being more prestigious and varied in the work, but County paid better, and tended to have closer relationships with the people I worked with. If NY is similar, I'd stick with County.

        You're also in and going through the academy already with county. Why resign and start all over again?

          Stay with Orange County S.O., Tony. The pay is better than the state, you are closer to home and the working conditions in a podular setting is better. The county will grant you leeway in certain matters whereas state corrections is not flexible.

                          It's not a pleasant experience getting sprayed with OC!!! Good luck in the pods, C.O.!
