    Correctional Officers

    Fellow CO's, this is the thread to find out a bit more about your brothers and sisters working in the prisons.
    Give your name and and the name of the facility that you work at.
    I'll start.

    I think a lot of people will be reluctant to give this info on an open forum.

    Why? It's not like it's super secret info. My uniform says where I work, and my name-tag has my name on it. Anybody could get the info I just put down by looking at me when I've got my uniform on.

    How about posting the photo used on your official ID along with your name?

    Nikki-Black -

    Are you looking to establish not a thread but a section where corrections officers could discuss OC? And why not allow cops and private security guards and former CO/LEO/PSG to join in?

    Oh! Wait! There are whole boards where those types can discuss things amongst themselves. Admittedly they seem to be rather negative about OC, but maybe if you discussed OCing there they might see some of the errors in their current thinking.

    Speaking for myself, I just do not see a need for a separate section here at OCDO. I could be wrong. A way to find out would be for you to set up a poll and then present the results to John and Mike.

    stay safe.

    Ditto. Not sure how open carry and corrections officers relate. When you're off-duty and OCing you're just a plain old citizen like everybody else....

    From thread to section is a pretty large leap, the OP explicitly stated this thread and there is nothing in the OP about wanting a new section. This individual is clearly just looking to discuss life as a correctional officer with other OCDO members that are also correctional officers. I see no need for the hate.

    I just say Wow!!

    Nicki Black did not start a thread about how COs carry guns or go shooting..

    He Started a thread just to identify by name and job site, corrections officers!

    He is crazy as a bed bug.
    I dont think anyone here would want to announce our true identity and place where we can be found, by anybody!!!

    Anybody can find out info about pretty much anybody else at any given point in time, I'm not worried about giving out my name and place of work. I just wanted to connect with other people who have the same views as me when it comes to firearms and who have the same job as me. Other than a couple of people, I see that everybody thinks that this isn't worth a thread.

    I think that is because the common thread is views on firearms, as opposed to being in the same occupational field.

    Now, a discussion about why we here support OC when so many others in the same occupational field oppose it would IMHO be worthwhile. We would still have the opportunity to mention where we work.

    stay safe.

    Front stage/Backstage behavior.

    Many people on the forum, well my guess, are displaying backstage, and would rather not have the boss, or co-workers dropping in. Would tarnish or even blow their frontstage at work.

    Just a guess!

    Because disclosure of one's identity online has lead to many security problems. It's been highly recommended against since the first days of usenet groups, circa the early 1980s.

    Lulz.

    Dood, check my earlier post in this thread. Check my user name. Hell, google it.

    Don't be skurrd. It's impossible to be online at all, and still live in the dark. The more measures you take, the more clues you leave, just like someone trying to commit the "perfect crime".

    If you wouldn't say it with your name attached, don't say it at all.

    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
