  1. Yes, but if you are woman you have to be a tomboy and be cool with schlong and pussy jokes OR you have to have a lot of tattoos on your arms and be cool with schlong and pussy jokes.

  2. Easy Peasy work, especially compared to; Cook, Lake, even Kane County Jails. With the low to no bail rules these days, most are going home the same night brought in.

    And usually only dealing with one of the 3 “D’s” or in some cases, all 3..Domestic, Drugs, Dui.

    Yeah a few murderers pass through here and there, but most of that is those who sold drugs with fentanyl.

    You will be able to afford a very nice ride and have plenty of walking around money with this pay and OT.

    A lot of the employees get Fat so not a whole lot of movement required.

    Skip College, work at the Jail and make money fast.


  3. Job is getting easier by the day.

    The inmate to officer ratio is just about 1 to 1.

    Although, you still have to put up with the asshole admins, cronyism, and like “correcting on” says “be cool with schlong and pussy jokes” because they believe sexual harassment is just part of the job.
