This is always makes me mad correctional officers never get recognised as a LEO. But a large percent of police and fire fighters would never set foot in a correctional setting. People think that inmates stay locked down and we (Correctional officers )have weapons and all kind of equipment we take their post with 150 convected felons and the only weapons/tools we have is keys and a radio. No the inmates are not locked down no we dont carry guns, knifes, sticks, and mase. The only time Correctional officer is recognised when one makes the funny paper.

You are not recognized a law enforcement because you are not. Sounds like you wanted to be in law enforcement but couldn't pass the written or psychological exam, or maybe the background investigation.

How funny you want to whine that u do not get recognised for something you chose to do but yet I do not see you running into a burning building nor do I see you chasing a man with a gun through a dark alley or woods oh yeah I almost forgot I haven't ever heard of a c/o having to roll up to a domestic with shots fired either. Please cry me a river and then go apply at the sheriff's office b/c I heard they were hiring b/c some left to go to the federal prision so they could have a cake job.
