    Police officer, corrections officer , EMT , fireman and at times counselors. Yet just prison guard pay. How sad these civil cervants heroes don’t get the paid and recognition protecting society for all they do and deserve. Don’t forget unsung heroes protecting your six.

    The question one must asked themselves is, “Where was the cocaine stashed while the visitor gained access to the facility”.

    Good job! There have been news reports of Correctional officers in prisons providing drugs to inmates. Stopping outsiders from bringing in contraband stops competition… Thankfully that’s not the case here!
