Congratulations to all you guys!

I have my familiarisation tour tomorrow at HMP Highpoint. Kind of nervous, don't know what to expect. I am very keen in becoming a prison officer.

Any tips? :slbg:

You will be it is a completely different environment if you have never been in a prison before. But just me you will enjoy it and it will make you want to do the job more and more.

Oh 1 more bit of advice...... Leave everything in the car!!! Except your ID and make sure your empty your pockets of everything even the fluff!!

I was asked what I knew about the prison ... luckily out of my own interest I had done some research online, only so much information you can find online and they'll know that, was also asked why I wanted to become a prison officer ... this you shouldn't have to research :wink:

Listening is important and asking questions ... we visited more or less every square metre of the prison, and managed to speak with prisoners, I asked them questions too.

My home is victorian and so is the old parts of the prison so I loved the artictecture, etc ... showing your interest for the job and where you are going to work I think is important.

I'm sure you will enjoy your day and the experience.

PS: leave your mobile at home, in your car or in the locker that they provide you with .... double check you have emptied your pockets before entering the prison!
