I could seriously go on and on about night shift. I've been on the night watch for 6 months. We get screwed over like no other. Like when they call you at 1400, (which is your 0200) and they think nothing of it.
Or all of the ridiculous training that goes on. For example, you work over the weekend, get off Monday morning only to have training all day Tuesday. Exactly when are you supposed to sleep? Then you have to stay up all Tuesday night, so you can sleep Wednesday morning to work Wednesday night.
The list goes on and on.
We may have less inmate contact, but we pay for it through sleep deprivation.
As far as accomplishing more things (finding contraband etc), that's definately easy to do.
Child Molesters - haha, We call them "Cho-Mos"
