It&rsquo;s a job that many believe requires traditionally masculine attributes like brute strength and force. &nbsp;But less than a quarter of Utah Correction&rsquo;s officers are female and that statistic does not begin to tell the entire story.</p><p>The Utah Corrections officer training program is the same for both men and women. The profession has become significantly more amiable for both sexes using verbal tactics and well-established boundaries between inmates and officers.</p> Mon, 06 Aug 2012 15:45:46 +0000 Ray Howze 16135 at http://kuer.org Women in the Utah Department of Corrections
