Andy’s Answer

Christopher,

There are so many different issues a first line supervisor has to deal with. I am currently a supervisor for a county sheriff’s office and oversee a staff of 50 correctional officers , contract medical workers, kitchen workers, and 1200 inmates. On a daily basis there are the usual day to day issues such as staffing, dealing with the public, and inmates. To add on top of that you have the incidents which pop up and must be addressed.

Christopher,

I explained many of these concerns in my response to one of your other questions. However, I wanted to share this link with you. It is the agency that governs law enforcement rules, training, etc. in the State of Texas. Please take some time to explore it. I will try to help you find answers to any questions you may have!

James’s Answer

I can't speak on being a police officer, but I was an FLS in a prison. The biggest problems I faced on a daily basis were balancing my man management for my employees with the prisoners. I had to make sure my team was ready to accomplish the mission each and every day. I then had to be the tip of the spear when it came to accomplishing that mission. There can never be a day where you're not feeling it. Mission comes first.
