Correctional officers (COs) maintain the safety and security of federal penitentiaries. They:
- supervise and interact with offenders
- regularly watch for signs that the safety of others or security of the institution might be at risk
- take appropriate security measures when necessary
Institutions operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. COs work in shifts, including some weekends and statutory holidays. They occasionally need to work overtime.
As a correctional officer, you will:
- conduct routine patrols and inmate count
- supervise inmate movement and escort inmates both inside and outside the institution
- search cells, offenders, visitors, vehicles, living units, and surrounding areas
- conduct security checks and perform other duties as necessary
- verify safety equipment
- draft daily logs
- submit reports
- brief visitors, volunteers, and other criminal justice professionals who enter the institution
