Passing it Along: Wisdom from Corrections Staff – Volume 1

A student from last semester was in a quandary. He hated the negative media portrayals (of corrections staff). In December I gave him your book … to balance out the negativity….  He called it a book that all students should read.  Normally poker-faced, this military veteran turned student was absolutely animated.

This booklet provides real life experiences from folks who have walked in your shoes and truly get what you do. I believe the experiences shared here can be of benefit for staff just starting on their correctional journey, and also serve as a reminder for staff who have done their time.
