How does one become a Corrections officer?
I would like to become a corrections officer who works in prisons, but what steps would I need to take? Are there any minimum requirements? A certain weight? Anything like that? So how would I go about it? I'm 25 years old and a female and I reside in Virginia.

There are different types of prisons. You either work for the state or local law enforcement. Since I don't know where in Virginia you live, I can't give you any info on the local law enforcement jobs. For the state prison, you can apply here: http://www.vadoc.state.va.us/careers/apply.shtm
