    Max-sec in Washington sounds like Naselle Youth Camp. I had a buddy of mine spend about four years there.

    Clalam Bay and Walla Walla are supposed to be pretty hard core. But I never worked there. AHCC, where I was, was pretty much a country club. They had a guy killed there this year, and he was the first one ever since it opened in '93.

    Naselle states that it's unfenced. That wouldn't be max security, and it's described as medium from what I can tell. It looks quite a bit different that the max security that I worked in Sacto. Nothing less than multiple assaults, or armed robberies would get you into the max unit, with most kids having at least an attempted murder to multiple homicides under their belts. Needless to say, our security was very tight, with multiple layers. I actually found it to be one of the easier units to work, as it was much more predictable/restricted than the other units. But if something went down, it would tend to be much worse than what would happen in the lower security units.

    Thanks for all the info guys. I think I'll give it a try, worst case I can transfer or just find another job if I don't like it. Although, the conditions and hours sounds like something I can handle. Here in Suffolk County police get paid a ridiculous amount of money after a few years. COs are a little behind the PD, but pretty close.

    No, missed the cutoffs while overseas. They take years to get back to you anyway. My buddy took NCPD test in 2004 and still hasn't finished the application. I am told the CO process is a lot faster.

    I dont know anything about corrections so take what I say with a grain of salt.
    My buddy is a CO, he says it is great, but the pay sucks.
    Maybe its something you want to think about?
