Prison Officers in Probation Period

Hi Guys and Gals

Those in probation mainly are you getting the support you need.It is open for for only those in their probation period really.

Be who you are, and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Not really had any support from training dept or manager but lots of support from other officers.

Sidney do you mean if the probation- officer firstly asks for guidance and support, is he or she getting it, and is it forthcoming and adequate.

Or is the training dept coming to the probation officer and asking.

In our prison both Officer’s and OSGs get training and evaluation books that need to be filled in and every couple of weeks they attend a one to one with training were everything is evaluated , this is also in conjunction with there mentor.

This evaluation is for 12 Months for both OSGs and Officers, without this they do not come out of probation; also there SPDR is there for 12 Months whilst in probation.

I would like to think if they need support in-between these procedures that they feel confident to ask there line manager , the probation -officer will always get more support from his peer’s and quite rightly so.
