      As far as tougher than a county depends on your outlook. The thing with BOP is they are all about inmate programs so you will see that and it will seem like they have more stuff coming.


      There is BOP policy and institutional supplements (way institutions tweak policy for their individual needs) being Oxford is a medium I wouldn't go in there thinking stuff happens, just learn how they do it take to some senior 7 or 8 Officer to mentor from and you will be fine.

      Everybody that I know that worked there had nothing bad to say (a couple didn't like the cold winters) its sort of a lay down joint in folks go there to lay down til retirement as there is little inmate drama.

      Good luck
      Thank you very much in625shooter. I was just curious how everything worked. This helps a lot! Time to get things ready. Does anyone have any advice on what the three weeks at FLETC is like? An is a 5 to 6 month window after EOD the usual time period that BOP sends their new employees to complete FLETC?

          Glynco is mundane. They water down stuff as a generalization and you revert to your institutional supplement when you get back to your real world.. The fireararms is the best part but again is still watered down and when you see who is shooting next to you you will understand.

          There will be a lot of not only stupid people but stupid questions and to hear them tell it were the acting warden before they came to Glynco.

          Pay attention and don't party and you will be fine. Its not that bad

          And even before Facebook what happened at Glynco does not stay at Glynco so don't look for a fling, or party and try and drive. Glynco security and Brunswick PD take great joy in busting anyone from Glynco so moderation.

          It is still about 6 months before you will attend. Give or take.

          • Bolo, I left in 1986. Probably before Mr Cooper. How does the pay stock up against the cost of living down there? Here in Denver the median home price is 325k, rent for a one bedroom is now starting around 1200 for a close, decent apartment. Otherwise COL is decent.

                I completely understand what you mean, I don't drink, mostly because it messed with my father until he passed. I will keep my head clean and stay off the radar. I tend to be to myself when I am not at work of course.At work you have to just do what you are suppose to do there and then go home. I wish it were that simple for a lot of people,but sometimes it is hard to move on from high school and college days.

                Also, what happened on Facebook with regards to Glynco?

                  I do understand that everyone is an adult and that they are entitled to a good time, I am old in this context that I would rather work on a car, run, or just listen to music in my off time. I think especially with all the different opinions that is enviable among different agencies that it is best to just do what you should do and then go home.

                  I do have a few questions, what is the best benefits with the BOP, I know that there are a lot of options, I am a single guy and just trying to get ahead of the curve by understanding the benefits and where I might be able to get a standard operating procedure booklet? Also, what is the further someone has gone to start work with the BOP and how did you guys usually find a good apartment? As my location is kind of remote, but there are several towns that I have found with apartments in the range of 500 to 700, which is not bad at all.

                    Carterville has turned into the place to live around here but its still about half of what it is in Denver. Houses are about $175k and rent runs around 700.

                      The Facebook reference was how everything is told on Facebook as it happens, even before Facebook people found out who was in trouble and who was screwing who before you got back.

                      As far as benefits with BOP you are on the FED LE retirement and pay, your clock on your age stops so you can try and transfer to other FED LE agencies even after age 37. You can transfer around the country. Your covered by LEOSA.

                      As far as the rate you posted on apartments, several BOP staff in NYC or Cali or other places wish they had rent that low.

                          Very SLOW paced. Its an old homestead joint activated in the 1940's so can be a wait to get on but not like a regular standalone in it has a separate small FDC (aka Jail) for pre and post trial holds.

                            Are you at FCI Englewood? I know it well from when McVeigh and Nichols were housed there during their trial. Good staff back then.

                            • Quick question... Thank you for the serious replies!

                              If I apply and get a position inside a joint starting out as a GL 5 Step 0 ( I hear they must match my salary... I am GS 9 Step 8). Can I apply for other positions within BOP as soon as I get my foot in the door? I really like the job description for Special Investigative Support Technician and the Correctional Treatment Specialist (Reentry Affairs Coordinator) positions.

                                I think you may be mistaken about them being required to match your pay. My friend is a LT. at bop and I asked him the same question about pay matching and to put it kindly he said they will not. However they may bring you in at a GL 6 instead of 5. My only question would be with a master's degree and those qualifications why would you be applying for such a low paying position with those credentials.
