Prison Officer Hopkins Correctional Centre and Langi Kal Kal Prison

"Working as a prison officer is nothing like what you see in the movies. I wanted a new challenge but importantly, I wanted a job that was meaningful. You get lots of training in this job and you never stop learning. No two days are ever the same. Be prepared to be busy, there is always something to do.
I started almost five years ago when my ch
ildren first started school and I haven't looked back." Karen, Prison Officer
