      I'm just saying in 20 years of BOP I have seen requirements get looked over. So again make them tell you no. Hell even saw one drama king transfer back and kiwd on his KSAs on experince on a non custidy specialized job Got himmed up for bot knowing the job and they (administration at the time) sent him to school for 2995 (the reporting amount to Region was 3,000 or more at the time)

      And thats bot the only jacked thing I saw Glad I'm retired

  • Also if I remember correctly, you put your social security number in the test

        He would be on a 5 board. But were putting him in for a ws-08 position as well at a different institution in his current trade just will be adding in the inmate aspect

    • Not very flattering article about BOP's $3 million purchase of ultraviolet light disinfectant portals. UV light can damage eyes, skin, etc, if safety precautions are ignored. My lobby has one and it's just sitting there, gathering dust.

      • Very stupid question, so I apologize in advance, but as a CO are you allowed to bring your phone into the prison with you or use your phone at some point during your tour? I'm not saying to use it for social media or texting, but just to be in contact with family or in case of family emergencies?

          No personal cell phones If you need to talk to your family or etc there is fhis thing called an outside line. Not everynphone has outside capabilities But you can make random calls within reason.

          But with 16 hour O/Ts sometimes last minute we understand the need to let loved ones know so yest at times you can call feom a designated line.

          In the case of an outside emergency your family can call in HOWEVER unless its a bonafide emergency like a house is burning down or someone is enroute to a hospital I'd advise against it. And fir the live of God avoid them calling during count tine as after gours it goes to control.

          If its somerhing other have your family e mail you to make contact when convenient if it can't wait. Or text your phone and you can call them from the lot after shift.

          Your there to count, check locks, say no and handle any emergency that happens.

          Drama need not apply

        Possession of a cellphone inside an Correctional Facility is a felony in many jurisdictions

        My state fired people caught with a cell phone or Apple watch capable of email or texts even before it was illegal criminally

            Oh you'll love the inbreds at Atwater. Talking about staff of course. The inmates theyre actually aren't that bad. Word of advice, keep applying for other agencies.

          Assuming you successfully completed the physical, drug screen, and preliminary criminal background check, you probably will get the official/formal job offer with salary and Entry on Duty (EOD) date after your local HR schedules the next new employee orientation class. There is no set pattern to how much advance notice the letter will provide. I have seen anywhere from 1 to 6 weeks advance notice.

          • Based on previous posts it is my understanding you don’t go to FLETC until almost a year in, but has anybody recently heard about classes or if it may just take longer than a year to go. Factoring in covid and classes that were delayed.

            I asked around the beginning of the craze a few months ago, and wasn’t sure if anyone had new info. Considering I start in a couple weeks I am sure I will be one of the last to go.

              It use to be somewhat common to get to Glynco within 60 days of hiring. 20 years ago I had a date and was theiugh beforw the 60 days .

              But thw last several years years (like 10 or more) Its been oushed back U less s I'll mething else happens (hurricanes etc( it was etween 9 and 11 months you will have it completed.

              As far as any local or institrion training to qualify you all that is is talk I'll go out on a limb and say never gonna happen as that would make it hard to justify all the GS 12 instructors at Glynco.

              @ Winter Patriot Yes BOP is a qualifying Fed LE position and once you complete Glynco you will be covered by LEOSA. Its been discussed sevwral times on this forum and this thread.

              Winter_Patriot Can’t directly speak for BOP but at my agency the only thing that it would count toward is For retirement purposes and FERS deductions. You are not issued creds, a badge or a gun and are unable to perform any LEO functions (at the agencies I’ve been at) until you graduate the academy.

              I am almost 13 months into the BOP and still haven't been to Glynco. Right now they are test running a version of Glynco being conducted from your working institution. It's weird to be done with the probationary year and still unable to work the armed posts

          • Applied to Brooklyn and NYC months ago and haven't heard anything other than a couple random emails for other openings. Anyone know if I'll see any movement on these positions?

              Have you been referred yet? Call HR and find out when they're pulling a list for interviews.

              Nope no status update. I emailed HR about vacancies and they just said to call usajobs or medical recruiters? So crickets and its been months since applying.

          • Anyone work/worked at FCI Coleman? I have some questions about it. Pm me please

            • How are you evaluated to determine if the agency wants to keep you?

              most people I talk to say you won’t get fired unless you have sex with an inmate, but I wanted to see How the process was and what to expect.

                Dont traffic with inmates, don't violate inmates civil rights, don't have sex with inmates and dont comment felonies or certian misdemeanors (like domestic battery) and do the minimum job wise and you'll be fine.
