Sometimes the choices he made thought out his life, were not always in his best interest, as he would usually find himself in a place where he really didn’t want to be.

We are all the sum total of our life experiences.

John Williams shares his unique life beginning with his tumultuous and often risky youth, military service, and a union leader culminating in his lengthy career as a Corrections Officer.

His story is mesmerizing as it is timely.

Born in North Vancouver British Columbia Canada, to Vern and Sandra Williams and the eldest of two children, John Williams grew up primarily in North Vancouver and Coquitlam, British Columbia Canada.

He left school at the age of seventeen and at nineteen he joined the Canadian Armed Forces. Honorably discharged from the Navy, he found himself employment in private security industry that eventually led him to a career in law enforcement.

At the early age of twenty-one, he found himself working as a guard at the once highly publicized British Columbia Penitentiary in New West Minster British Columbia.

For thirty-six years he worked for the Correctional Service of Canada, this book is about his experience as a front line Federal Correctional officer, and the challenges that they face day to day.
