"I am a correctional officer at TPWF. In response to the former inmate s statement I would like to say that being in prison is not designed to be like a vacation. There are rules that are to be followed and most of the correctional staff will see that those rules are followed. To my knowledge there is no staff working while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. I have been employed at TPWF for a number of years and if any of the staff were under the influence of drugs or alcohol while at work it would have been noticed and actions would have been taken.
As for employee/inmate relationships, that is something that has gone on for as long as I can remember. I can not speak for everyone but I have worked with the people on my shift for a long time and if that is going on I have not seen it. In closing if you think that TPWF is that bad, stay out of trouble, keep your nose clean and you will never have to worry about being here. "
