My day at work normally started at 05:00am, a debrief with the shift Team Leader from the shift going off duty.

05:30am Briefing to staff ( Co workers )coming on duty covering incidents or need to knows from preceding shift.


A briefing of duties to be performed, personal responsibilities and any other tasks required to be actioned by staff about to start duty.


09:00am Daily meeting with management.


The hardest part of the job I found was maintaining staff and client safety in a work place where violence could flare up at any given moment.


The most enjoyable part of the job, having the knowledge that all staff were safe and had completed their duties to the best of their abilities prior to going off duty.


A typical day of a Team Leader in the Department Of Corrections.
Pros
The value ofTeamwork, regulations and having good systems in place
Cons
Working in a often violent environment.

I have good day's and not so good but I enjoyed most day because meeting new people and challenge is all part of the Corrections Officer duties.

I enjoyed interact with prisoner's and help them with whatever their needs.

I have very a good working relationship with my work mate's. They are very important to me, someone that I can talk to when thing's are not running so well at home or work.
