What is it like to work as a female Correctional Officer?

Every female Officer will have their own unique perspective on being a Correctional Officer and how being a female impacts their role.  Some do not give their gender much thought as others find their role to be unique.  All Correctional Officers receive the same training and are expected to perform the same duties.  Females have proven they are up to the challenge of working in Corrections and bring valued assets to the team.  The advantage of having such a diverse workforce is staff work as a team to communicate with offenders and complete the operations of the facility.  Every female should consider a career in law enforcement; do not be intimidated, be confident, you can do it!
