The major perk to corrections is there is never a shortage of overtime. If you are willing to work the pay is there. I know in my part of the country we have an opioid epidemic junkies, junkies everywhere.

You will need a Green Card at the very least. To work in any Federal institution you would have to be an American Citizen.

Yes the sound of 22 years without the chance of a promotion doesn’t sound great, you might aswell be one of the inmates lol. Have you tried looking up prisons and just asking them if they have any placements?[url=http://phenqwiki.com/read-full-phenq-review/]about this Phenq[/url]

I live in Canada. I’d love to work in a larger Max Prison in US. Particular to Florida.
I work in female institution right now. It’s a major challenge as female offenders seem to have way more needs than males.
The Corrections Model is very different in Canada as well

America is well. There are parts that do have violence and drug issues but for the most part you can live in relative peace so long as you are not breaking laws.

The economy is getting better and work if you are willing to do a good job is out there. California is very expensive to live in compared to other places in the US. I live in Ohio and do well in this line of work. The major perk to corrections is there is never a shortage of overtime. If you are willing to work the pay is there.

You can read and write English you’re already half way there. Citizenship testing is fairly easy they even have guides for them to study. The process will take some time to get through though. But you can apply for a work visa which is a much faster process then citizenship.

I can’t say for sure, but I’d say your best bet would be to contact the US department of Labor and or the Department of Immigration. I’m willing to bet they would want to know which DOC you had plans of working for. In my first prison I worked with a CO who was born in raised in England. Good luck, hope that helps.

I am an Australian CO currently employed in the largest facility in the Southern Hemisphere. Can anyone tell me whether or not the US will facilitate a green card for me and my family to work as a CO over there?

New York state prisons are hiring and they have three classes starting soon in Albany.State DOC officers get very good pay and benefits the only downside is you must work near NY City for about 2 years before you can transfer to another of the 77 state prisons. On our county level we do not hire full time that often because of budget concerns or unless someone in seniority (like myself) retires. We hire many part-time officers.

The Ohio prison system is run by professional Officers and staff for the most part. Don’t know if theyr’e hiring right now but, as in any place, you got to want to do the job and mix with the right people. There are deadbeats and idiots in every prison in every state. Avoid them like the plague. You will know who to hang with. Right now, as I left in February, the good far out weighs the bad. Stay alert and be thick skinned. Only way to last.

grumpy, is PA still looking for help? I know this thread is a bit old but wondering if (given the state of the economy) there were still positions opened in PA? I’ll email you directly as well…

I’m not sure about you but I think I may try Phen375 because I heard it is a good appetite suppressant and I need that to help me slim down.

I know stuff happens. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity. It doesn’t seem that moving to the states would be such a difficult thing to do, especially for someone who has a career and a job to go to when he gets here. It’s a huge decision. It will be interesting to know what all you have to go through to get over here, so will you keep us in the loop?

Hmm long story short?Was married to a girl who was born in Canada & raised in Michigan so she knew a lot about visas etc.Now getting divorced from same so had to put emmigration on back burner while I sorted life out.
The job has changed beyond all recognition in UK,not least of which being removing the next rank that I would’ve been promoted to.So the thought of doing another 22 years with zero prospect of promotion does not appeal.Having worked on a 2 year secondment in the carribbean I discovered I preferred living abroad,preferably somewhere sunny. As I’ve been lucky enough to travel extensively in the USA,and liked most of the places I’ve been to it seemed logical to try to move there.
Why did I stop trying?It just seemed that one roadblock after another was being put in my way,I can understand it as this was just after 9/11 but can only hope things have calmed down a little.
Thanks for the websites will give them a try.
Best regards
Dave Butler
