The Correctional Officer Position 

The primary duty of a correctional officer is to maintain order in a detention facility. This involves learning any and all rules of the facility in which they work and enforcing those regulations to be certain that inmates act in an orderly way. Enforcement procedures include arbitrating disputes between inmates, performing disciplinary action and performing inspections.

Correctional officers inspect inmates, their visitors, their mail and the cells they occupy for any items that violate the rules of the facility, such as drugs or weapons. They also check the facility in its entirety for fire hazards, conditions that don't meet sanitary standards, regulatory infractions and tampering of objects meant to bar entry.
