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.

This volume tells the frank truth about “criminal justice,” and I do not mean the “PC” version, but the honest, day to day life of loyal, dedicated, selfless professionals who serve and protect our society.... The application of this information from the newbie to the seasoned veteran can help promote healthy public safety for the inmates, personnel, and the society at large.
