    Prison Officers Set For 5,000 Payrise

    At least some of them are, so ...

    ... WHY some and not all?

    Some may say a great pay rise , but i know a prison officer and yes he is on a lot of money but for that he can be on call at different prisons throughout the country for weeks and even months at a time, and the things that can and do go wrong inside the prisons can have a great effect on your life, he has been beaten , had broken bones, and has been taken as a prisoner too. but he is still there.
    So its not for everyone , no matter what the pay is.
    The biggest problem he says now are the new people who are running certain prisons through out the country, group 4 i think, and they seem to employ any tom dick or harry, plus Jane to do a job that they are not trained properly for .

    My old man had 2 jobs in his entire life forces and when he came out he went into the prison service,they make good money,nowadays they make better money because some of them will take things in for inmates for 300-500 quid a time depending what they are couriering in,they turn a blind eye to many things inside just to maintain the status quo.



    Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again. But life goes on.
    The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the passion that she shows to the outside world.

    It amazes me that mobile phones are available within prisons, I would have thought all they needed to do is block the signals like they used to do in hospitals and then they would be useless......

    Long-cz are the easiest phones to get inside prison,a friend of mine came out last year he had been in for fraud,he paid 500 for someone to bring an i-phone 5 in for him,anyone with money in there has a phone.

    True,but in a day and age when drones are used to deliver packages into nick its only a matter of time before some way would be found to circumvent a blocking frequency,mans ingenuity knows no bounds,could be worse,there was a program on TV last night about philippine prisons,jacuzzis and prostitute parties in rooms,an office block and his own TV presenting/producing studio,he was getting fellow prisoners bumped off with impunity,now thats when the prison service should have realised they had totally lost control of the situation.

    A voice changing facility, yes i know what it means but does it make your voice like Donald duck or something , plus for that amount of cash , have you tried it out yet .
