I have been employed in corrections for over 12 years. My service in this profession covers the complete spectrum of custody levels as well as working with both male and
female offenders. I served my time as a line officer for over eight years and then made the rank of Sergeant in 2011. I am currently employed in a maximum male facility in which safety and security is paramount.
During my time in corrections, I have reached far and wide to educate myself. I have attended training in multiple states that vary from gang awareness to human behavior. In 2014, I graduated Thomas Edison State College with a degree in Psychology. I pursued this degree as a way to gain knowledge into why humans do what they do. I currently own my own company, Systems Information Analysis, and our main focus relates to the training of correctional staff in regards to inmate manipulation. Besides my background in psychology, my years in the field
have given me the experience necessary to apply what I have learned in a manner that can help aid those in the correctional field remove the target from their back. I promote communication as the key to knowledge. It is through communication that we become better officers. In closing, manipulation is a two way street. It can only occur if you allow it to happen.
