I am a Security Officer for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. In my lifetime, I have had the opportunity to work with many people from different backgrounds and hardships. I have worked with children that would one day become some of those that I work with now. I not only work to make sure civilians stay safe and the inmates stay safe, some of these people have drug issues, have murdered, and done other unspeakable acts against humanity. My background is extensive in education and modifying the outcome of some major decisions people I now work with, decide to embrace. I want more insight into that mind set. I want to expand my knowledge to better help others. My background in non violent restraint management of children and my background in forcible restraint with adults has led me down a path that I feel I can be more of a help, than just another taker of a paycheck and go home with a feeling of : did I help today? It may seem ridiculous, because who am I? I am someone that has had a thirst for knowledge since I can remember. My background is part of who I am.
It's not a big deal. Its a relaxing pastime that I enjoy.
