Rotas / Swapping Shifts

Post by kinzku5  »

Hey guys, just thinking ahead.. At what point do we get our rota? Before POELT? During POELT? And is it okay to swap shifts occasionally with other officers? Is it easy to do this?

Thanks in advance!

It was a bit different with me because of covid I went to a prison to work until my course started so my shifts were already there. It may be different but about half way through your course you'll find out where you'll be based and rota. With regards to swapping shifts etc It all depends on how the other officers are on your wing, with me it's easy then both of you email detail to just let them know. Sometimes the officer will just do your shift and you return the favour down the line whenever he wants a shift off.
