18 years of age is too young for a correctional officer. Should agencies increase the hiring age? Why, or why not? What should be the minimum age required? (AGE 21) Would changing the age requirement allow agencies to more easily recruit staff? Why, or why not?

Age 18 is too young to be a corrections officer, especially a juvenile corrections officer. Before I became a probation officer, I was a security counselor (corrections officer) in the juvenile detention center. Sadly, the employees with the most issues were the younger officers. I attribute the issue to the closeness of age to the residents (inmates). The younger officers are seen as equals rather than superiors and therefore received more negative behavior from residents.
A minimum age of at least 21 should be implemented for corrections officers. At 21, individuals should have had life experiences that prepare them for the supervision of minors and other adults. The mental capacity to handle the stress and secure environment would seem to be more appropriate for an older adult than that of a senior teenager.
