I have been a correctional officer in Texas for 2 years. I have seen many changes through out the system.
They say they are going to do a budget cut but raise the standards. I have been around long enough to see the little cliques.
I am not empressed with TDCJ. Texas prisoners live better than the correctional officers do. It cost more to house one inmate in a year than what I make. I have seen discrimnation at one of the Huntsville units.
There are stories of the ranks getting some of the female officers pregnant. I personally feel that they should go back to the old of running prison. They run Texas prisons like a daycare. I personally feel that prison should be a place that you never want to go back to.
How many of you all believe that tax payers pay too much to house inmates?
