The job for the most part is a good one, and it pays well. I am just surprised the way things are run, thats all. Would I suggest someone not join up, no. But I just don't agree with some of the things. I know at my centre, I don't want to name it. We are treated like dirt. They play with our minds. Hold back training. Wont let anyone transfer. Schedule for Saturday morning comes out for Friday night. Some valid complaints on our parts. But I still say that it is a good job, just has some issues, as does every job.

Biggest retards I have ever met in my entire career have been in manitoba corrections. I have no idea why anyone would ever work there.

It doesn't take experience supervising male inmates to know not to leave them alone in a room on escort...

We could play the trade the "oops duh" stories all day but I think everyone heard you the first many times you expresses you opinion. You want to tar everyone in corrections with the same brush then go for it, its quite telling.

Yup, you want to bet Correction's solution will simply be to stop letting people with less than a few years experience do hospital duty (which is what this was, different than an escort) and escorts. A few people could not follow policy and a few others could not use common sense and the rest of us get screwed.

Sorry, public outcry and internal charges are far more prevalent with police doing something so stupid. Face it, your training and organization is full of fuckery.

Nevermind that the article you posted, isn't at all the same situation.

Yeah, a few ruin it for the rest. :rage:

You don't read in the paper about the CO who gets injured on the job scrapping a shit rat who's attacking their co-workers. Sure, there are fucktards in MB corrections, but there are some good ones in there too...With all due respect, don't forget about the good ones.

Why can't we all just make fun of firemen??...I mean get along? :P

Because Madeline wants to deflect attention to police and anything else she can other than admit manitoba corrections is a joke (which is already a widely known fact). Before you respond with some comment madeline, yes, I am from manitoba, yes ive worked in the justice system there and other places in canada. People in your agency openly agree that the hierarchy there is broken beyond probable repair yet you choose to blame people with "under a few years experience" and anything else you can think of. Honestly, you want to argue with jim street who has been working WPS for years and on this forum for years and you think you are going to find many people sympathetic to your opinion? really ? You are only helping to tarnish the name of manitoba corrections further... just leave it be......

Deflecting attention? No just pointing out that mistakes happen on both sides and pointing out that certain posters don't need to post their same thoughts on corrections on each page, certainly not when others are trying to keep to the topic of the forum, which is Law Enforcement Applicants. Plus I'll point out if I really wanted to fight with I would not have ignored the first couple of times corrections was insulted here. Someone wants to post your opinion on MB Corrections then fine, but saying it over and over offers nothing. Being on this forum for years or just one day does not mean you are anymore right or wrong or should or should not be challenged.

Where have I defended MB Corrections by saying or even insinuating there are not problems? Just because I don't bash them or agree with someone who is bashing them does not mean I am saying I think things are great, maybe I just don't choose to air this stuff in public because, well it's just not the right thing to do. And I'd know more about what the issues are than WPS or RCMP, just as they know more about their organizations. If we stick strictly to this escape as an example there were mistakes made by both the line officers not following policy and yes, with the system putting people so new in that situation, plus others I'm not getting into. On paper it should have worked, but management knows that things don't work like they do on paper, their fault was knowing this and still sending them out plus knowing this an not addressing the problem which the rest of us all know about.


Not to mention, you're wading into a discussion between people who are on their respective jobs and might actually know stuff when you are just an applicant yourself? And telling us what we should or should not say about corrections and policing? I suggest you certainly take that route when and if you get on with CSC because staff love when new guys start and tell them how it is! You'll do great!

To sum up my issue is this:

1) No need for the same people to throw out the same corrections bashing comment every page
2) Bash the system and how Corrections is organized, ok, bash the officers by seeming to lump them all in one bucket, no. As MBCO1 said, there are many good professional officers there to who work in that imperfect system.
3) This is a thread in an applicants forum, keep to the topic of applying and questions in regards to such.
