Question about DOC

Post by bearman456 »

Hey guys quick question for those working in state DOC. Could you guys give a run on the daily routine when in the facility. I know that everyday is different but what would your day consist of if you work a housing unit?

I know a bit about Federal Corrections and know there is no roll call in the beginning of your shift and you just go to your post, not sure if you do that for State DOC or if there is a formal roll call in the beginning. Any insight would help.

Thank you in advance.

No so called roll call.....you call the day before to see what post you have if you don't have a bided job and and start time....You're what we call ASOP.....housing post, you may or may not get briefed by the officer on the post you're working....count your equipment, do your count make sure all convicts are alive and call in your count.....then wait for the daily BS

Thank you very much for the reply. How many officers work per unit and does that depend on the type of unit and/or facility?
