Why does the Marion Correctional Center have such a turnover in employees since D. Boehm took over as warden. Something not right is going on there.

Boehm was not much to bragg about when was just treatment, never should have been in charge of security. When inmates are known as clients you know security is in trouble. Was a time supervisors ,especially Shift Commanders had to work their way into a position and respected the officers under them. Those days ended years ago. In reality even before Boehm took over. Downfall started when promotions was given to the snitches and buddies. The officers has enough on their plate without having to be cautious around their fellow officers.

What can be done about this? I know several people who are ready to push it to the limit. They have had all they can take.

quit and take a pay cut and apply at a factory or at marion youth center. not very many places around here start someone off at $30,000 a year with just a h.s. diploma. im not saying the place isnt a hellhole to work in but its not like everyone can get the warden out just because they dont favor him...if that was the case thered be a lot of bosses out of work by now. that place emphasizes the fact that its a correctional TREATMENT center and the inmates have rights and probably have access to better healthcare, libraries, work out equipment, and food than the majority of the people in this county. they have people who works on their cases and appeals sort of like their own social worker within the system to make sure theyre being catered to

You don't know some if the stuff going in in this center. If you quit and go on that won't stop this stuff from going on.

The place itself is not too bad, as most the inmates are not. It is a Government job therefore alot of politics involved.Your pay and benefits are earned just for the treatment you are put through. Main thing to remember it's just a job, and you have very few trustworthy friends there.
90%of the job is been a good actor,when the higher ups are around you are the most efficient officer they have. Otherwise do it by commonsense and you can make it in there. Take it too serious and you will never see retirement.

Yeah, it's always been a good ol' boys netowrk but now the convicts are treated better than people that work there. The administration is too busy trying to fire officers to worry about what the inmates are up to. Richmond needs to pay attention and get Boehm and that Major out before they get some hurt or killed.

Heard the Major was being investigated for sexual harassment. What about the captain that is such an a hole. Something needs to be done with him.

Both Captains should have gotten rid of a long time ago.One very strict but actually was most the time equal[treated everybody like peasants], the other by kissing big time the previous Major's behind. He would have sacraficed his own mother for that position. Do not want break anybody's hope but I think change is too late. You always heard how bad the institutions were up the road, Now Marion is just like them. That was the plans when I left from up there.When I was there it was better but I would not do it over again. Granted it is a decent retirement but you give up alot earning it.

Hopefully the one in Grayson will open soon and they can transfer over to getaway from the lying, and conniving bunch in Marion.. Maybe one of the inmates will get Boehm. I don't know how someone could go from being a psychologist to being a warden. I've known him since he moved here and he never did have good sense. Seems to have gotten worse.

Best thing I ever did was leave that place. Inmates were okay and some of the staff. But the majority of them were butt kissing, tobacco farming, snitches.
If you werent in the click then you were lower than the inmates. I can imagine how bad it is now.

I miss a lot of my co-workers but with DB as Warden I can't imagine. They should have just brought Fergie our of reirement.

From what I understand it is not too great anywhere in the state.We have a whole new generation in control and it will never be like it was in the past. You are dealing with the "ME Generation" now. The center use to be run by common-sense and experience.

unome must have never worked directly with or under db.
Yes he has education, but a little commonsense also helps which db {as you put it} is lacking. Education does not always make you a great leader.There is nothing wrong with working at McDonalds nor the people working there.Only problem would be having to wait on somebody with the mentality such as yourself. Of course there are a few dedicated workers such as yourself that has a broken nose due to "db" turning a corner too quick. Had an assitant warden one time that always said "go to Mcdonald's" needless to say they got rid of him. Do not care how great you think you are , still just a number to the system. If you still had the previous director of Corrections that use to be in Richmond db would had left the system a long time ago.

Education doesn't mean anything when you are eat up with the dumbs$$ like he is. I have known him and his whole family since they came to Marion and they are all a bunch of idiots. They all have good educations but don't have the common sense to put it to work for them.
