CAT D Advice

Post by Adviceplease123 »

Hi everyone,

I'm 21, and want to make the jump from the Police to the prison service.

There is a CAT D local to me, please could you advise me on what its like being an officer there? Do they carry batons regualy?

Furthermore, any insight to what its like escorting prisoners on their days out of prison? Such as is it in unifrom ect?

Many thanks!

Batons are only carried in open and female nicks on nights. Escorts to hospital appointments, etc are done in uniform as a singleton officer. Escorted town visits are rare now and done in civvies.
