"Life as a Jailer” is a book that is long overdue, and is NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. Have you ever wonder what REALLY goes on behind the walls of a Prison or Jail. If so, you just found the right book. We (Ret.) Capt. Joe DeFranco & (Ret.) K-9 Off. Tom Duncan hold NOTHING BACK in this mind blowing account of both our careers as Correctional Officers… We’ve both seen things & dealt with things that you’re not going to believe and WE TELL IT ALL… “Life as a Jailer” is a TRUE factual account of the daily on goings inside the walls like: Murders, Escapes, Fights (assaults where Officers have had fingers bitten off and Inmates have been stabbed/shanked,) Cell Fires, Rapes & so many other mind blowing stories... But it's not all bad, there are many funny stories too and (if you can believe) GREAT times. Looking back we are thankful for those days because it’s the good times that got us through the bad days...


  • Extremely Accurate

    As an officer who is currently working at a maximum security prison, I can confirm that the content of this book is in no way over-exaggerated. I purchased this text out of pure curiosity to hear these former officer's portrayal of the profession and quickly found that I was personally able to relate to the vast majority of the stories/experiences that were discussed. Overall, this is an extremely accurate breakdown of the numerous "behind the walls" aspects of the job that most C/O's encounter on a daily basis. Job well done, brothers...both with this book and throughout your careers on the inside. Stay safe and keep enjoying your well deserved retired lives!
