Ok, so last morning I was sitting in my window office. The guy next to me opened an exam preparation book and started reading. He was studying to become a member of New York’s Boldest. One of the questions caught my eye:
What is the most important quality in a corrections officer:
a) Physical strength
b) Not being afraid of anything
c) Quick reaction time
and another one:
What should the correction officer’s attitude towards inmates be?
The official correct answers are probably d and c, but I think it’s actually c and a in real life.
Here is what I found on the Net:
Preview a typical Correction Officer training program.
-Objective Observation and Report Writing
-Transportation of Inmates
-Crime Scene Preservation
I bet this sort of training is even more relevant in corporate culture. Just replace “inmates” with “coworkers”.
I think there is a decent store of psych warfare knowledge in these training books, I should get some for my library.
