Bean counter or not, you put yourself in harms’ way. I can’t imagine it was easy. I’m a 65 year old female, and spent 25 years in uniform, working in all-male, maximum and medium facilities in NY State’s Dept. of Corrections. Eight months after taking the job, a rookie female officer downstate was murdered by a convict. Don’t think I didn’t have second thoughts about taking the job...I did. I got through those 25 years, but by the time I retired, I was a changed person.
Wow. Impressive. Tip of the hat to you ma’am.
