Oh here we go again the CO haters are out, what.... you couldn't pass the test or the background check or just to lazy to get off your ass and take the test or you didn't want to leave mommy and work downstate for 3+ years?????? And no COs aren't subject to random drug testing and neither are police officers unless there is a reason such as an arrest or whatever the state deems is reasonable cause for you to have to take one. Thats what unions are for....to protect employees rights. I personally have no problem taking a drug test anytime if I were asked....and yes out of 20,000 COs you are bound to have some bad apples and the same goes for police officers or any other profession. If you want the job take the test....but most people like the ones complaining on here say "I wouldn't do that job" if thats the case then shut up and quit the bashing. You are obviously jealous of the money we make and the benefits. To most of us its just a job and a paycheck....

I'm sorry, but you are wrong. CO's and Police officers DO get random drug tested. They do not need a reason to test. I believe CO's have a tough job, and a valuable one. For the people who like to talk trash about CO's..well I would like for you to step in a hard core prison and guard these low lifes for 12 hours a day. Lets see who's the tough guy now? I applaude CO's and their duty. Thank You for doing the job alot of us do not want to do!!!

Tough job maybe somewhere else, but not around here.
Hard core prison, the majority of the CO's never been in a hard core prison.
You thank them, that's funny, you should meet some and listen to how hard they have it. Now that's funny.
Most guards think they are tough guys who one on one are just punks.

Really?? What do you think upstate is? Where do think guards HAVE to go and work until they get transferred back home???? It's called sing-sing and green haven. Do you even know where that is?? I'd like to see you be in there for 8 hours and deal with the lowest scums of society? despite what you think you know, CO's "around here" have to deal with rapist, murders and all kinds of mutts...there are some ignorant CO's I'll give you that, but every profession "around here" have their good and bad just like there are a lot of really lazy, bad doctors, police, fireman etc....and I don't think "most guards" think they are tough guys they are just trying to provide an income and decent benefits for their Family!! and doing what they have to get through the 25 years before they can retire..

You must of watched to much T V or listen to them about how hard they have it. I know a lot of guards and when they get in the right place, around the right people, they like to brag. You can believe what you want, but some of us know the difference.
How many times do you hear of a guard geting hurt in upstate ny?
When they started building these prisons they took just about anyone. Many of these people never really worked before and they saw a state job with good pay and benefits. They are just babysitters.

What I mean is why are you bashing CO's? There must be a reason. Unless you were an ex-prisoner then why would you have to even deal with one or even care you stupid human being!!!

Its not upstate NY it's "Upstate Correctional Facility" located in Malone, NY and it's a "Maxy Max" where all the bad boy's go. Similar to Dannemora AKA "Clinton Correctional Facility", also where the worst of the worst go. And no my information does not come from TV it comes from CO's that deal with the shit and sometimes urine that's thrown at them every day. Every year there is about 75,0000 violent crimes committed in NYS, where do you think those convicted go??? Would you like to "babysit"them?? If it's soo cake why aren't you a CO?? You are sounding like someone either very jealous; what's the matter didn't do well on the test, couldn't take the test at all because of YOUR criminal record or is it you failed the psych exam??or are you just very bitter??? What's the matter? Did a co leave your sorry ass for something better?

If it so easy, become one. Put your money where your mouth is. Walk the walk. Can't? Then shut it. Quit whining because others have it better than you. Who is next? State Police? Teachers? All state workers?

Baby sitters? What, do they read them bedtime stories? Tuck them in at night?

Here we go, typical hillbilly thinking. Just because I am not interested in being a CO, people automatically think I am jealous.
I was referring to the prisons in upstate ny, not just the one in Malone.
Hope they shut them all down. The state seems to dump their trash around here, criminals and sex offenders.

Maybe not jealous, but slamming them for no good reason. Lets see if you can do it. If it is so easy why not? Good easy money and benefits for you. Lets shut em down, its not like the area needs jobs.

Well I hate to tell you but you are wrong....I am a CO with almost twenty years on the job and I havent been drug tested since the day I started the academy....as for police officers I may be wrong, some departments may, however the MPD isnt one of them....
