Joining to corrections will provides an opportunity for me to serve and protect my community. As I mention before correctional officers are a very important part of the Law Enforcement field handling high profile criminals on a day to day basics and keeping our nation safe and I would love to part of that.
I have 2 years and 11 month as a Correctional Sergeant. In that time my experiences as a correctional sergeant has been both as an area supervisor for adult and youth offender programs section, segregation and a shift supervisor. As an area supervisor I have had to handle many different inmate issues to include but not limited to the following: conducting inmate disciplinary, handling inmate grievances, inmate property, inmate classifications, and disruptive inmates. As an area supervisor I was also in charge of many officers where I had to train and develop their skills being that most of them had under a year experience. In 2015 I was hand selected by both the Associated Warden and Warden to take over segregation to clean up the problems that were occurring in segregation.
As a child, I have always had an obsession for watching action movies with my father. We always had that bond with one another, action movies were typically the only movies we would watch. The longer I would watch the movies the more thoughts came across my head. Since then I always wondered if I should focus my career in Law Enforcement. I would always say “Mom, Dad, I am going to be a Policeman.” The more I continued to watch these movies the more I would convince myself to become a Policeman. At one point in time I realized that the crime scenes would catch my attention way more than Policeman. Then I realized that my obsession was not based on Law Enforcement it was based on Forensic Science. A thought occurred to me, what would it be
. I applied to graduate school with the long term goal of working in a correctional facility. A childhood friend of mine was arrested and sent to prison in August 2007. I saw him four years after his incarceration. These four years definitely took a toll on his physical appearance and his way of thinking. He is 25 and has the looks of a young person whose youth has been wasted. As I sat with him, I had high hopes of being able to laugh out loud while reminiscing about the past. However, I became upset and tears of sadness trickled down my face. He confided to me thoughts of suicide. He explained to me in prison terminology or street talk, one must never drop the soap. I sobbed as he continued to talk about his sentence. At times, his words
I served as a Veterans Service Officer and Contract Compliance Officer at the North Carolina State Veterans Home in Salisbury North Carolina. Duties included assisting Veterans and their family members in applying for VA benefits through both the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) and through the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). This required me to have knowledge of various laws, regulations, and policies of both the VBA and the VHA. As a Contract Compliance Officer, I monitored the day-to-day operations of the Facility Contractor and ensured Veterans were receiving the appropriate standard of health care, which was in part, funded with monies appropriated from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs budget.
The second I stepped onto the campus, I knew that it was where I wanted to be and I felt like I was at home. The atmosphere felt friendly and family-like, the campus and the surrounding area was beautiful, academics are amazing, and the athletics and their facilities are great. The most appealing of these factors to me was the outstanding criminal justice program. This really caught my eye because my long-term goal after college is to work in the criminal justice field as a criminal investigator or a crime scene investigator. Not only does UNF have a great criminal justice program with outstanding professors that were, at one point, in the criminal justice field, but they also have great ties with the FBI and Jacksonville Sheriffs Office,
Juvenile corrections officers oversee incarcerated minors. These are youth who were not adult age at the time that they committed their crime. Their Juvenile corrections officers are no different compared to the adult corrections officers. However, juvenile corrections officers have a special duty, These Co’s act as life coaches by guiding the juveniles emotionally, mentally, and psychologically throughout the confinement and rehabilitation period. The goal that every juvenile officer tries to achieve, is for the offenders to have learned a new pattern of behavior by the time they are released from being incarcerated. A second goal is to have them gain enough confidence and self-worth so when they are released back into society they will not return to their old criminal habits
Being a soldier was a really tough life. In the end I hated doing the same thing day after day with no change in sight, I despised the leaders that didn 't take care of their subordinates, and most importantly, I couldn 't lead my soldiers from the front anymore.

I am a thirty two year old single mother, who is a returning student to Empire State College after a three year break. I began at Empire State College in 2011 with hopes of graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice. Prior to that, I graduated from SUNY Genesee Community College with my associates in Criminal Justice in 2004 and I thought my college days were done; that there was no further need to advance my education to just be a police officer.

I want to join the Marines and become a military firefighter because, one day, I will run inside of a burning building and save someone’s life.

Deciding to become a Marine has been the best decision that I have ever made for my future career.
