Cellblock Monitors

“We are the second set of eyes that keep you safe.”

Cell Block Monitors are civilian members responsible for the safety and security of both the prisoners in their cells and the officers interacting with them. They do this by monitoring activities in the cell area via cameras and monitors, as well as by completing 15-minute walk-throughs. Cell Block Monitor positions are permanent part-time, working six-hour shifts, 24-7. They are scheduled a minimum of twenty hours per week. Working in the cell block area is a way to be exposed to the world of law enforcement. If you are interested in becoming a Police Officer, being a Cell Monitor could be a stepping stone.
