    Thumbs up Arkansas DCC

    Alright, I Appied for DCC in arkansas on Oct 15, 2009 for a correctional officer position and a probation officer position. I just got called by DCC for both positions. seems like timely manner only applies when your dealing with criminal procedure....oh well, at least i was pretty close to the top of the calling list. the job closed yesterday and here come the calls today.

    One thing i was trying to get figured out from the DCC officer who called me was the issue of carrying a fiream on duty and/or off duty. Im already licensed as a law enforcement officer in arkansas, which was a condition that i would have to meet within a year of being hired, which was what i was told. however, that didn't answer my question she just skated around it. lol

    As a CO probably not required to carry on the job, PO on the other hand some states do allow them to carry on duty and off. You will just have to read the statutes.

    ADC Still can't get my current employment verified which is holding up my starting the academy...The ADC representative said that they had to hear from U.S. Security otherwise someone else would have to be hired instead of me.

    I would be seeing what is wrong, maybe something as little as a mistake in putting the number down.

    There was once a Bald Man who sat down after work on a hot
    summer's day. A Fly came up and kept buzzing about his bald pate,
    and stinging him from time to time. The Man aimed a blow at his
    little enemy, but his palm came on his head instead;
    again the Fly tormented him, but this time the Man was wiser and
    said:


    "You will only injure yourself if you
    take notice of despicable enemies."

    Re: Arkansas DCC

    Thanks tuffelhound, I double-checked the phone number with the ADC human resource officer. the last thing that i can think of to do would be to call the ADC resource officer in front of my security representative and then hand her the phone. I hate to say that my captain is lying to me, but I have been informed and verified that she's been lying to me for weeks about another officers verifications....so why wouldn't she lie to me about my own?

    Re: Arkansas DCC

    Okay, so here's where im at. My captain at the security department confirmed that I work for them even though she said "I can't do that, you have to have the state office verify you". I dont' know whether or not it was me who ended up backing her into a corner or two of my sergeants who went to bat for me. Im sure ill find out tomorrow when i talk to the sergeant.

    So now tuesday i have to go back to the facility and get fingerprinted, turn in a deposit slip for direct deposit, and thats all the HRO said. I do know that I have to still take my PAT though.
