  • Nashville metro Correctional Officer

    I recived a letter scheduling my written test for Correctional Officer with Nashville Metro/Davidson County. Anybody work for them as a correctional officer? Can anybody answer a few questions about this department?
    1. How is the moral in the jail for employees?
    2. How much is health insurance and other benefits?
    3. How easy is it to move to the road? Metro or County
    4. Anything else you might want to add or think I should know?

    Thanks

    One thing you should know about Nashville and the Davidson County SO is that in this county the SO only has two responsibilities, the jails, and serving civil processes. They do not patrol and deputies do not have police powers. The Metro Nashville PD handles all the police work throughout the county and they are two completely seperate departments. So getting on as a correctional officer will not get you any closer to the road.

    As far as specifics for DCSO I don't know much but Metro as a whole offers fairly decent benefits. Hope this helps.
