Written by a serving Prison Officer…
You Might Be a Prison Officer if:
You have the bladder capacity of five people.
You have ever restrained someone and it was not a sexual experience.
You believe that 25% of people are a waste of space.
You believe that another 25% of people are oxygen thieves.
Your idea of a good time is a cut up at shift change.
You’re suspicious of anyone who is remotely friendly to you.
Discussing blood and dirty protests over dinner seems perfectly normal to you.
You find humour in other peoples stupidity.
You have your weekends off planned for a year in advance.
You believe that a shallow gene pool should be grounds for imprisonment.
You believe that the government should require a permit to reproduce.
You believe that unspeakable evils will befall you if anyone says “quiet around here isn’t it?”
Your diet consists of food that has gone through more processing than a computer can track.
You consider chocolate to be a food group.
Having a beer at 7am seems relaxing.
You have ever wanted to hold a seminar called “Suicide, getting it right the first time”.
You believe “Too Stupid to Live” should be a valid court outcome.
You have ever had to put the phone on hold before you begin to laugh uncontrollably.
You have heard the SO muttering down the landings, “Who is in charge of this mess anyway?”
When you mention vegetables, you’re not referring to a food group.

You think caffeine should be available in IV form.
When a prisoner states “I have no idea how I got here” – neither have you and nor do you care.
It occurs to you suddenly one night that you are working in the twilight zone.
Your favourite hallucinogen is exhaustion.
You believe in aerial spraying of prozac.
You nodded and laughed at all of the above, and realised what a sick bunch we all are.

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
