When you attended your correctional academy as a new correctional employee, you were taught your organization’s policies, procedures and practices. You graduated, and were told the rest you would learn on the job. You learned that the job is tough, demanding, grueling, and, in many cases, thankless. You often found that you were on your own when you needed to make the right choices and decisions. These articles you are about to read are written by your peers, and could be considered your Master’s Degree. If you can learn and apply something from each of these messages, you will emerge at your retirement, promoted, effective, successful, happy, proud of your many accomplishments, and realize what a legacy you have left the organization.
