I have to say that I am constantly amazed by the amazing work that correctional officers do. In my career I have seen first-hand what they do day in and day out, and it’s no wonder why an organization like the Federal Bureau of Prisons is so important. And it’s no wonder why I love them so much.
The federal prison system is a huge undertaking involving hundreds of thousands of people, each of whom is taking on a huge responsibility. The Bureau of Prisons, which actually gets its name from the prison it is housed in, is the nation’s largest corrections agency. It handles the day-to-day operations of the federal prison system, and its mission is to reduce recidivism.
I’m not sure we’re going to find out how much of a difference the correctional officers make when we see how they interact with inmates, but their job is to make sure that prisoners are doing their time in the most productive way possible. I mean, I know I’m not a fan of mandatory minimums, but it seems that the federal prison system is going to have to get creative when it comes to the way it treats its workers.
When I was in prison I got to know a few correctional officers, and after being released I got my own job in a different state. They are not paid the same because they do different things. They do not just sit around and wait to be shuffled off to work on some stupid assembly line. They do what they do best, and to make it even better, if you’re in the same state you can be promoted within your division.
This is a great idea. If you are in a state with a lot of correctional officers you can be promoted to a staff position. In the process, you will get to know the other staff members better, and you will be able to have more meaningful interaction with them.
In a way it’s similar to what happens in the military, except that while in the military you are expected to do what you do best – physically, not socially. In corrections, you have to do what you do best – emotionally, not socially. And not just emotionally, but in your own mind.
With the help of a few new tools called “Psychometric Scores” a correctional officer can see the difference between a good and bad situation. These tools are based on your current job, and they are able to tell you when something is going wrong (such as a staff member being too negative or too nice). The goal is to make every correctional officer see each other as people with good and bad points.
And now, we get to the nastiest part. The part where you have to go to the psychometric test. It’s not just about the tools. It’s about the test itself. Psychometric testing is a process that involves taking an online test, and then you have to talk to real people who have seen the test.
Psychometric tests are a sort of self-evaluation process that requires you to answer questions about a certain experience or person. This is where things get tricky. The test itself has a certain shape. If you have a certain skill in a certain area, you have the knowledge to answer questions about that skill. If you don’t, you don’t. If you have, say, a bad back, you have the knowledge to answer questions about your back.
