The month of September is here and summer is officially over. Last month, several inmates became sick after smoking synthetic marijuana. Anyone who has been dealing with inmates would know that they will try anything if they think it will get them high. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen inmates trying to pass off medication right after getting it from the nurse.
The month of August is here and this year is flying by. It's a busy month as usual with all the retirees leaving. It seems I may not able to make it to all of the parties, but let me tell you, that’s a good problem to have. My congratulations to all the retirees. May you live long and in good health.
Now back to the people that still have to work.
July is here and boy is it hot! Speaking of hot, it seems the changes that corrections have made to their days off policies have caused a lot of officers to review their days off concerning the 10% rule. Did you know that if the number of people working scheduled is, let’s say, 11, that in the ‘days off’ book it should be 2 people allowed off.
The month of June is upon us. Can you believe that half the year is gone already? So far, what a busy year it’s been.
Let’s get right to it. I have received numerous phone calls about the days off policy that is now in effect.
April fool anyone, this year is flying by and there is always so much to get done. My latest area of complaint comes from officers working in the sanitation areas of all facilities. It seems that once again, someone at Headquarters has decided that this would be a good area to cut staff by up to 40%. I wonder if these people understand that these jails operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
