    i dont think you are going to find too many people going from doc to djj (or vice versa) because there are no significant changes in pay between the two agencies.

    your best bet is going to be jacksonville sheriff's office.

    the private corrections industry is a nightmare, but hey, if you can get a nice cushy job with a private company, go for it. (but you cant say you havent been warned!)

    I'm not too bothered as I've done 25 years in Law Enforcement and already get a pension. This is just another job to help with some extra money.

    I just wanted to hear from someone who may have worked at some stage as both a Correctional Officer (DOC) and also a Juvenile Detention Officer (DJJ) to get a fair comparison of the 2 jobs.
    Two types of Inmates I would NEVER, NEVER repeat, NEVER want to work with again are Juveniles and females........I have worked with both in the past and------------------ yuk!
    Papapump51 has said it pretty well.


    Flordia DOC seems to hire just about anyone (don't take this wrong) so you you should have no problem getting on.........it would be being able to hold your nose long enough to get over the stink of how you would have to do things that would be the challenge for a retired LEO. As a suplement to your pension.........and having the added plus of being able to quit if you got pizzed off............might not be a bad deal!

    You are wasting your time with both of those agencies... Go to a county corrections dept. Usually better pay/benefits. People constantly leave the DOC and DJJ for our dept...

    I worked for DJJ - they are an ok division - I can also say that the kids have more rights than and adult inmate and they will report you for anything and everything!! I was investigated a few times for nonsense - but even if it is a crazy outrageous claim they have to dig deep and snoop - thats my only input on them

    Florida D.O.C. or D.J.J. ?

    Hey guys,

    Is there anyone that has had experience of working with / in both the Florida Department of Corrections (DOC) and Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ)?

    I'd be interested to hear their thoughts / comparisons between the 2 depts.

    Thanks in advance....
