  • " Veteran Officer "

    You hear it on the news and see it in the papers so let me ask you, When does a rookie officer become a " veteran officer" is it right after probation or is there a specific number floating around out there ?

    Integrity in a officer means the settled disposition, the resolve and determination,
    the established habit "of doing right where there is no one to make you do it but yourself".... You are who you are when no one is looking

    I'm 21 years old and have 2 and a half years on the job. I'm just about the most senior officer on my shift. What does that make me?

      think that the title of veteran officer is usually a self declared title I only consider one officer on my shift a veteran because he retired from Angola and works with us as a 'play' job. Alot of COs, not all of them; that call themselves veteran officers are just trying to stroke there egos
      Shut up or Cuff up

        I think you could throw out any number---and have arguements for and against that specific number.

        Just remember that what the news says is not always the truth. Most news agencies REFUSE to use the term Correctional Officer but insist that we are guards.

        The terms veteran officer and senior officer are not necessarily interchageable. (Not a knock on you Branis----just a statement)

        Veteran officer is more of a term used by other staff to describe staff with such experience that both less experienced staff and more experienced staff trust to get the job done

        I have always liked the 5 yr mark as a milestone in Corrections. You have received enough experience OJT to have a pretty good feel for the profession, but not enough to be jadded.



        For one thing, in Iowa, at 5 yrs you are now vested in the retirement systme And the pay at the 5 yr mark is such that you almost can not afford to go anywhere else
        Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

        My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

          I know and no offense taken, I was just getting at its hard to nail what criteria would be for a veteran officer and I dont consider myself a veteran at all. just lucky enough to know better

            In New York City whenever there is an incident in the news that involves law enforcement they usually call officers that are not on probation veteran officers (even if the officer has JUST past his probationary period) and they call probies "rookie officers". That is why I asked the question because I personally would not consider an officer who has just past probation a veteran officer.

            Integrity in a officer means the settled disposition, the resolve and determination,
            the established habit "of doing right where there is no one to make you do it but yourself".... You are who you are when no one is looking

              It all depends, I think on your experience.
              I have seen 20 year guys who know nothing. They have been hiding out their whole careers.
              I have seen 5 year guys who are awesome. They have been in the trenches since day one.
              I have 22 years and most of it has been hard. 15 in Shu. I consider myself an experienced guy.
              I was never a hide out type of guy. I am getting to the end though. I have 3 years left.
              Will most likely hide out my last year.

                  Alrighty then.
                  There' s your answer.
                  Like I said, I like to look at it in experience. The number means nothing if your a moron.
                  It dosen't make a good officer it justs makes you closer to retirement than a young guy.
