As Correctional Officers, we are responsible for continuously supervising inmates’ behavior and their activities within the detention facility and provide correction treatment for inmates that step out of the line according to pre-established policies and protocols. We also ensure that inmates remain in custody and restrained during their movement or transportation, and escort them through highly secured areas. We contribute to the maintenance of the institution’s security by regularly performing surprise cell searches on inmates’ cell and their visitors, as well as checking the mail that they receive for any contraband such as drugs, phones, weapons, or money.
- prepare incident reports and other relevant documentation
- enforce every rule and regulation governing the facility’s security
- break up any physical confrontation between inmates, and protect fellow officers from harm
