Correctional officer interview questions shared by candidates
If you had an inmate who started to have a siezure, two who started fighting, and one who decided to try and scale the fence and run, what would you do?
I would attend to the individual who was having the siezure first by calling for medical back up. I would then call for back-up and attempt to break up the 2 individuals fighting. The one scaling the fence, he got hung up on the barbed wire so, he gets to hang there until my back-up and I can get to him.
I can't even tell you how wrong that answer is!
If you choose to give 'feedback', at least make it constructive by sharing some of your own words of wisdom as to why you feel the answer was "wrong" or incorrect. Simply by making a statement such as yours shows your lack of professionalism.
