PostSubject: CORRECTIONAL OFFICER   Thu Nov 19, 2009 3:59 pm

HI,
I AM INTERESTED IN BECOMING A CORRECTIONAL OFFICER SINCE BECOMING A COP IN MASSACHUSETTS IS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE. I WENT TO SCHOOL AND GOT A 4 YEAR BACHELORS DEGREE IN SOCIOLOGY AND CRIMINAL LAW. NO PRIOR CONVICTIONS, BASICALLY MY NOSE IS CLEAN. MY QUESTION IS HOW INTENSE IS THE PHYSICAL TEST FOR A CO IN THE STAE OF MASSACHUSETTS, CURRENTLY I AM NOT REALLY FIT DUE TO 2 KNEE SURGERYS IN THE PAST YEAR AND A HALF (WORK INJURY 85-FOOT AREA LIFT). I WILL START TO GO TO THE GYM I JUST NEEED TO KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT FOR THE TEST. THANKS!

Some of those could be tough on the knees!
