  • During institution emergencies, may be required to work irregular hours, Sundays, holidays or unexpected overtime. 
  • Incumbent must be flexible and have a broad knowledge base to use own initiative in the resolution of problem situations.
  • Information as to operations and procedures is provided by post orders, BOP program statements, local supplements, custodial manual, internal correspondence and staff meetings.

 

At the Federal Bureau of Prisons, being a Correctional Officer goes beyond the uniform and a set of keys. At more than 120 federal prisons, our team of officers upholds the safety of our facilities, our communities, and our country.
