    Go online and look for the Arizona Department of Corrections website. See if they are hiring correctional officers for the state prisons. You can also check the local county in Phoenix/Mesa for the Sheriffs department website to see if they are hiring jail detention officers. See what there requirements are and what the steps to getting hired is. Generally the steps are application, written test, interview, physical abilities test, background check, psychological, medical exam and then final job offer. The perquisites are probably 21 years old to be appointed, high school, no criminal record, and public job experience. To better your chances, I would recommend trying to find a job as a security guard, preferably at a shopping mall or hotel where you get a lot of public contact. Or even try being a Transportation Security Administration screener at Sky Harbor. That will look good on a correctional officer application because it will teach you responsibility, customer services, ranks, and learning to be in a position of authority. You seem to be physically in good shape so your physicals should not be an issue. Good Luck,
