So you want to be a Correctional Officer?

By Carl ToersBijns, Deputy Warden of Administration & Operations (Retired)

One must be serious to consider corrections as a job or profession. If you are seriously thinking of becoming one, stay in shape, learn to communicate effectively, address cultural diversity and sensitivity concerns with an open mind and learn how to perform contributional skills, attributional thinking and most of all, critical thinking skills. I tell them this job consists of many forms of profiling to learn who you are dealing with and how to better understand them.
