Main Purpose of Job

A Correctional Maintenance Officer I Electronics is the entry level of work involving the custody, security and supervision of adult inmates in maintenance and repair work in a correctional environment. Employees in this classification do not supervise other positions. Employees in this classification receive close supervision from a Correctional Maintenance Officer Supervisor. Employees are assigned to day, evening, night or rotating shifts. Employees are subject to call-in during emergencies and staffing shortages. Work is performed in and around a correctional facility, and employees are continually exposed to inmates who may be abusive and hostile and have access to potentially dangerous tools and equipment. When assigned to outside maintenance jobs, employees are exposed to all types of weather conditions. Employees may be required to physically subdue and restrain inmates during fights, riots and escape attempts. The work may require moving objects weighing over 25 pounds. Positions in this classification are evaluated using the classification job evaluation methodology. The use of this method involves comparing assigned duties and responsibilities of a position to the job criteria found in the Nature of Work and Examples of Work Sections of the class specification. The Correctional Maintenance Officer I and Correctional Maintenance Officer II are differentiated on the basis of degree of supervisory control exercised by the supervisor over these employees. The Correctional Maintenance Officer I learns to perform duties under close supervision. The Correctional Maintenance Officer II performs the full range of duties and responsibilities under general supervision within established guidelines.
