I also served the disciplinary reports, investigated the reports for witnesses and video recordings, wrote a detailed summary of my findings and forwarded the report to classification for disposition. Since disciplinary reports and the internal court proceedings are considered due process, I had to maintain records, and ensure that every step in the process was timely, accurate, and up to the standards of the U. S. Department of Justice, Florida statutes, and Florida Department of Law Enforcement/Florida Department of Corrections policy.

As a transport officer I transported Inmates to and from facilities throughout Florida, utilizing the Statewide low-band Macom radio and cellular phone to stay in constant contact with various Corrections facilities throughout each transport. I also needed to coordinate with various outside law enforcement agencies for assistance when requiring trailing vehicles for transporting high-profile Inmates.

In my current post as arsenal officer, I am responsible for the maintenance, repair, procurement, and assignment of the majority of the equipment utilized at our facility, including all radios and communications devices, firearms, explosive devices, restraints, chemical agents, munitions, and other various equipment. I am required to perform monthly and quarterly inventories all such equipment, write detailed weekly, monthly, and quarterly reports pertaining to the status of various equipment and munitions, and to mail memos and reports to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms for the procurement and use of NFA items and explosive devices.
