  • Sworn in Correctional Officers

    Hello, I was just wandering how many of you officers out there are sworn in? The prison where i work is looking into this along with the benefits and all aspects of it. I was curious if individuals who are sworn in could give me some feedback on the benefits and how it impacts them or just any general information.

      We were sworn into office at the academy graduation years ago but it doesn't mean squat here we are not peace officers. I'm not even sure that they still swear them in at graduation anymore.

      Our benefits are determined by the State Legislature, union representation is a joke here and they are virtually ineffective on important issues (correctional peace officer status, raises, etc.).

        I think, for the most part that swearing in and LEO POST Certification go hand and hand. There really are only a hand full of states that do this. But there are also a few counties that have full out deputies working the jail, like LA County. I like the whole swearing in thing myself, not because it gives me any kind of super powers or anything, but it has to do with the mindset of the whole thing. I guess it helps to separate the "Guards" from the "Officers".

          I was never sworn in, but I am a certified Peace Officer. Graduating the academy gives you the Officer status.

            I'm more afraid of being nothing, than I am of being hurt

            My views are in no way associated with the views of NYS or DOCS and anything that may seem that way is purely coincidental

                  We are sworn in when we are hired and receive OJT until we attend the academy. Here in New York State the departments have up to a year to send you to the academy. If you don't go to the academy within your first year, you lose your peace officer status and you cannot have any inmate contact until you do attend the academy.

                      Cook County (Chicago and the outline area) has their CO's as Deputy Sheriff/Correctional Officers. We are sworn in peace officers.

                        For the BOP at Leavenworth, new officers and new staff were sworn in during institution familiarization. We have federal law enforcement status, as per the United States Department of Justice, United States Code, and others I don't remember right off hand.

                            Ohio state correction officers are not considered sworn peace officers, unfortunately.

                              Inidiana State COs are not sworn, or considered LE for that matter. We fall under public safety. I've heard they have tried to change that but it never gets very far.
                              I can't believe I do this for free!
