If you are a correction officer or thinking about being one this book will give you the tools and techniques that you need to have a safe and successful career.
I became a New York City Correction officer in 1987 at the age of 22 and retired in 2005 at the age of 41. I have no permanent scars or physical injuries, and I have no 

​ medical problems or conditions as a result of my service.  I have not learned all the secrets of the universe but there’s one thing I do know and that’s how to jail. ​

I, like most of you, did not have a relative or family friend in the department that pulled strings for me. I didn’t have a hook. I couldn’t make a phone call to get a steady post or to get a supervisor off of my back. But throughout my career I have been lucky enough to come across senior officers that took an interest in me and taught me what I needed to know to make the job work for me.
Now, I want to pass on what I have learned to you. Why take a career’s worth of experience and put it on the shelf when I can share it with you. You shouldn’t have to learn things the hard way, the way I and many other officers did. You shouldn’t have to reinvent the wheel.
I have written this book to help officers that are trying to work their way through the maze that is Corrections. I want to help those officers make it to retirement without being mentally or physically injured like so many of my friends and colleagues. I have seen officers lose their marriages, their families, their health, their jobs, and their lives during my years in corrections and I want to prevent as many officers as I can from going down that path. 
This book can help any officer at any stage of their career, whether you are thinking about becoming a Correction officer, just starting in the academy or preparing for retirement. I want to help you stay safe, positive, healthy, and focused. I want to show you how to work the job and not let the job work you.
