Hey, why do they call it "Corrections", anyway? Do you remember seeing anyone come out of there corrected?

Nope! Thanks everyone, for the good wishes and advice. I'm not sure if my retirement carries over, they are both county retirements. I'm going to check into it.

Just a thought, Reb. If your current retirement plan guarantees you any kind of free health insurance upon retirement and you are fully vested, which you may be, I would consider the possibility of hanging on to that retirement separately, for now at least. You know what they say about a bird in the hand, and health insurance will very likely be a major factor in your ability to retire.

You may very well still be able to roll it into your new employer's plan later on, after you are vested there, if you are able to be vested into free health insurance upon retirement there.

Good idea, but we are not vested until 20 years

One piece of advice; get out of the "jailer" mindset. This has washed countless Deputies here that have been hired out of our jail...they just don't understand that being a Deputy isn't being a jailer. You can't hose someone down with OC because they refuse to get changed :P

The ones we have hired that have failed are unable to get into the mindset that every day you put on your uniform, batman belt, and gun...you are going to war. If you aren't prepared to do battle, this isn't for you. There are bad people out there (you know them as inmates :P) and just remember that before they get to jail, they fight, run, shoot at, and attempt to kill law enforcement officers and people every day.

If you ever come across someone you have a rapport with from your days as a jailer, do NOT drop your guard because you two were "cool" back in the jail! This could someday get you killed...he is not the same person on the streets as he is in the jail.

Good luck, have fun, and enjoy the ride!
This is very solid advice. Thank you for taking your time to post it.

Update: On day two of the academy, I suffered an injury to both of my knees. The first day consisted of a ton of physical excersises, from leg lifts, mountain climers, jumping jacks, walking lunges and much more. After walking lunges, we conducted an approximate 2-3 mile run, with the above all conducted in boots.

The second day, was very similar to the first, except there was a good deal of wall sits. During another 2-3 mile cross country run (couldn't miss a puddle of course!) I felt sharp pain in both my knees. I completed the run, and notified my instructor.

Doctor says over use is most likely the culprit, with possible tearing of some muscles around the knee. I can't walk around very well at all right now without pain.

The academy has of course, been less then sympathetic, and I'm getting a great deal of grief over being hurt. I have no idea whats going to happen with me.

Wish me luck, this is a very trying time for me.

I am sorry to hear of your troubles. I know it may not mean much, but healing up is sometimes a lot more important, especially when you are in danger of permanently damaging yourself. NSAIDS an epsom salts baths are helpful, and see if they will let you wear leg wraps. ICE and heat both will get the toxins away from the torn area.

If you want your problems to go away for good, cough up the money for this stuff:

http://www.maxgxl.com

You want MaxGXL.

It's not snakeoil. I don't make money from these folks.

This stuff really works. Your knees will be good to go in two weeks.

Watch. If I'm wrong, I'll buy your supply from you.

Ouch! I did that in AIT with the Army; no bueno. Do what you have to do to heal, man, regardless of anything else--you only get one body per lifetime.

Ice elevation and nsaids for first day, alternate ice and heat after that. Ice after workouts to reduce swelling, check with sorts medicine specialist, talk with physical therapist to get more ideas.

If it's not torn stuff, you may be able to tough it out. But make sure it isn't something serious, or something partially torn that you could tear all the way if you're not careful. See if they'll let you wear brace of some sort for extra support.

Good luck, hang in there if you can, don't be afraid to back out and come back after you heal from a minor injury rather than try to stick it out and cause an injury you can't come back from...
