I've been as far as the screening process with them, so the basics I know. Top pay might be a bit more and the 36k I know is during the academy only. I've been told that with OT they easily make over six figures. As for working condions, allegedly there's a serious lack of comradere. No clue as to the Captain's pay. A quick Google search should give you the results for the exact figure.

My husband is in law enforcement and let me tell you even at your 2nd year with NY corrections you'll be making way over 60k with OT, which is a norm. They usually stick you on your 1st and last days but you can request more. It has great benefits but of course you have to have the mind for it. The OT is an entire shift. So lets say you go in at 3pm and worked until 11pm than you'll do 11pm until 7am. Also you work 4 days on and 2 days off, I'm not sure how it works into pay but that is how it is, you dont work 5 days straight like most. By the time you reach top pay you'll be making well over 100k with OT. Last year my husband made 120k alone that is with only doing one OT a week. So the potential for more is there. We limit how much he does because we have kids and stuff and I work full time also. If you can deal with all the mental stuff and physical stuff than it is a great career move. You retire at 20 year with full benefit, and the job security is awesome so you cant really go wrong. My husband is military so he thrive for crazy job like this it doesnt really bother him all that stuff that goes on in there but trust me it is alot.

I am surprised to learn that there is no maximum age requirement for the job, but you do need at least 60 college credits before you graduate from the academy.

I don't know why they mention the whole 60 credits. You only need 39 to join(assuming if you're not prior LE/military). Upon completion of the academy, you're given the 21 credits.

my close family member did the job on rikers island for 25 years, pay was good, pension is great when you retire and benefits are great. but the job is horrible. you are basicallyin jail everyday, it is like you are locked up. if you can deal with criminals everyday and being in a jail everyday, then go for it.

I am sure the environment is rough at Rikers Island but it can't be as bad as a C/O working at a maximum security prison that houses the worst of the criminal population.
