  1. New uniform and tactical vest.

    by , 07-30-2016 at 07:24 PM
    The Regional Director of the Western Region was at our detention facility on Friday. I missed the staff recall but supposedly we are getting new uniforms next year.
    The shirts will be dark and were are switching to a tactical vest. (without the M.O.L.L.E. Attachment) Did the BOP set up another "National Uniform Committee"? Does anyone know if the uniform has been approved for next year or is it tentative?
  2. Relocating with family.

    So my wife does not know this but I want to move as often as possible. I ultimately want to retire and live in the south somewhere. Maybe Alabama or Georgia. But for the time being I want to travel. Prison to prison, walking up the ranks. I currently am waiting to hear about a lateral that I was referred for but already want to put in for something new. I keep leaning towards Thomson. To be part of activating that place I think, would be great for my career. I know my family will not want ...

    So here I am, over a year later after starting in BOP. Gotta say that the year flew by and I have learned A LOT. One characteristic of mine however is rearing its ugly head. The thoughts of "what if" are circling and apparently I feel as though I have to pay attention to it. Anyway, after some years bouncing in some rough spots in the city and now a year in a federal detention center, I am thinking what would it be like if I were to join a police agency. To some it might be a glorified ...
  4. Respect

    by , 12-17-2013 at 06:48 PM
    During my time as an officer in my prison I have gained the respect of the inmates by simply doing my job and expecting them to follow the rules, at least when I can do something about it. I don't go out of my way to catch them in the act of breaking them, but I don't tolerate breaking them even in circumstances that some other officers would turn a blind eye to them. However, I have noticed that some of the people in my life on the outside have started showing me less respect than I have most definitely ...
  5. Just a thought....

    by , 12-05-2013 at 02:13 AM
    Now I know that while on this website I have come across as a young, hot headed, insensitive jerk. While I am not going to argue against peoples opinions, and/or observations I will say that I am just another passionate rookie. One of the topics that I bring up a lot is physicality, and just being physically able to do the job. While I believe your physical fitness should be at a level that exceeds what your agency is looking for, being at least at a minimum level is fine if that is what you're ...
