I know the above term is usually frowned upon in public service jobs encase it's a jinx...

But it's gone so quiet on here lately what's going on :slsh:

Everybody busy training etc?

Seems that everybody who was active prior to POELT have vanished? Is it really frowned upon to be on this site?

I wouldn't have thought so personally. That's no way undermining the rank as I'm sure they do a fantastic and deserved job, but I'd imagine if it's a career your interested in, then you'd want to move up a 'band' and become a prison officer anyway?

I have no idea either way tbh just my 50 pence.

Yes, OSG's can do various roles. Really depends what prison though. Common roles include Reception (property), Visits and Control. All require some level of knowledge. I've seen OSG's in a few other niche roles too

Nothing to say once you get the offer
It's strange as I don't need to know as much or I'm less worried

Yes it's frowned upon, tbh all we got was "some of you will have been on prisonofficer.org" but they don't like it but apart from that think abou. How people find their way here, for me vetting had started and i wasn't being told anything so a google search later and i was here.

Once you start training you'rebgiven a start of course Lecture (you'll see) and you really don't need the site anymore anyway!

Cammy,

My opinion, but, you are so very wrong !

Vetting, then POELT is but the start of the story and your career.

"They" might well warn you off this site, but it used to be brilliant for discussion and exchange of ideas. The amount of help and advice was overwhelming and still could be - but it depends on YOU, ALL OF YOU, contributing, asking, opining, answering, advising. This is a brilliant resource but it depends on contributions ans support. All of you in HMPS can benefit from this site, but it's up to you to keep it alive and valid. Even the local branch don't know everything.

I'm gone from the Service so have nothing to gain and probably not much to offer, but you have and you owe it to each other to share and help - if you don't nobody else will.

I wish you all well, but please help each other all the way through.
