Thank you Minister of Justice

Thanks for the extra 30 officers you're planning to give to our Jail. It would have been really nice if you hired them last January when the competition was originally posted and they were needed. Instead you let all of your management and trainers go on vacation for the Summer and left the officers you have now severely understaffed in a dangerous environment and forced us to work 65+ hours a week. As a result, some young officers have seen more in 3 months than others have seen in their entire career. You'll starve these poor new officers for hours and half will be gone by next summer, as always.

And as for the improved training, stop making us look like we're stupid hicks. There's nobody in CNSCF that doesn't exceed the training standards for any correctional facility in Canada; in fact more of us have degrees than your managers.

This week was the first time in 3 months any manager has actually come into the secure core of the building... and the inmates were all locked up. That barely gives one an idea of the day to day experience of front line staff. Your whole approach to the safety of my coworkers is disrespectful. —Searching careerbeacon
