    A Day in the Life of a Corrections Officer

     For some people, a bad day at work consists of spilling coffee, an angry phone call from a customer, a last minute project, and a traffic jam on the way home. A bad day at work for Craig Altoft is witnessing a stabbing or injury of a co-worker or inmate. Altoft is a Department of Corrections Officer at the Michigan Reformatory in Ionia, and it’s not uncommon for Officer Altoft to respond to an inmate fight at least once a week.
