    Lol screamcheese you'll be in a rude awakening when you finally get in the job. You eill notice. These infractions most of the times the captains don't serve them. And if you write them after your shift most times they don't want to pay you for report writing. Defensive tactics will go out the window. Just say get back get within 3 feet and spray to be honest. The deputy warden and above are inmate lovers and are out to get the officer. Let's say you had a good use of force but for some reason your socks are green and not black you get written up. Is kinda petty

      Bad advice, don't ask an inmate anything, especially about another inmate. They are more united then we are and will use any chance to get over on us.

      I ask other inmates all the time. I cover important info and show them the face and ask if they know him. 9/10 they do and you avoid waking up entire house searching

      I'm currently in the academy and a couple of captains said a teletype drop and said that for people who come to nic and work there for a year, after there year is done they get to choose what command they want to work for. but it will house the serious violent inmates when they open from what I heard

      Why house the serious violent inmates when they open ?? and you mean inmates like mentaly ill inmates, inmates that would normally go to the box or inmates that are worst of the worst but have some type of medical problem ? (AIDS, HIV) That sounds like inmates that would go to CPSU or ESH, why @ NIC ??

      I dont know any details about that. You can definitely hold off but nobody knows if there will be academy classes in 2018.

    This is a very important point. I made the mistake of writing an inmate up right on the floor, i saw him approaching me and i felt he was going to try to talk his way out of the ticket. He punched me in the face.

    It was my own fault and ive learned many lessons regarding keeping my guard up, not letting them too close in certain circumstances, and yes ... write the ticket elsewhere lol.

    Sometimes no matter how well the academy teaches something, and no matter how many others tell you something, it still takes an actual incident before the lesson is learned.

    Be safe everyone! This is a great job if you can find a way to make it work for you. Luckily the dept has a billion opportunities for you to explore if you choose to.

      Can you list the opportunities?

      Literally anything you can think of available in any city, is available on Rikers Island! We create our own power, manage our own sanitation, produce our own food, handle our own transportation and maintenance. We even create our own linens, and then there is the Laundry details. Theres also the telecommunications division, recruitment teams, investigation division, ceremonial unit, firearm and tactical unit, etc. You can also become an academics instructor for the academy and/or PT instructor. All of that exists for the entry level officer, as well as all higher ranks!

      Not to say its easy or difficult to get any of the above, but the opportunity is there and if you know what you want you can keep pushing for it until its yours!

      When you're in these units are you still given jail rotations or are you strictly AIU investigators or recruiters or ESU

  • hey guys....I have orientation on wednesday. I recently tested my blood pressure and it was 132/100. I know normal blood pressure is 120/80. I will most likely have a medical. should I be concern about my blood pressure. will I be put on review?

      Don't eat or drink coffee or tea. Your medical would be right after orientation if you arrive early. Only the first 25-30 get the medical. Others would have to reschedule and go another day

  • got through medical today Blood pressure was a issue but made it...question will they test blood pressure again during the process? I heard they test blood pressure before the academy any truth in this?

      the respirator is held during the fit test when you get the call that you've been approved for hire and right after that you have your preemployment and the cotton swab will take place that same day, either one can come first.

  • Guys a general question:
    How many academies are there throughout the whole year. Lets say i finish all the process. But for some reason i can not attend the current academy. Can I hold it for next or following academy?

            Does the psych get placed into the application for someone else (ie Investigator or Commsioner or head psych) to read

            the swab test is for the drug test. the respirator is just breathing with the mask on hooked to a machine that measures your breathing pattern.
