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.
