Sorry about that lol, but it’s just a guess since I scored low and they are finally getting to me so I just assumed they’re at the bottom of the list.

Good luck everyone. It's a good paying job, and you can easily make 100k+ in less than 6 years with the amount of OT you can do at the jail. They're definitely dying for bodies as one poster said. I left for a PD as I was more interested in becoming a street officer. However if you want to do Corrections for your entire career, go county.

Can you tell me about your experiences for the time you spent there? Pros and Cons? Any advice?

I just got scheduled for Med and Psych and to report to the jail on Tuesday. Does anyone know if I need to bring medical records for med ? Also does anyone have an idea of what’s going to go on when I report to the jail Tuesday it just says to come in and that’s it. Maybe some more paper work?
