CO Carlos from A&E's Behind Bars: Rookie Year

Carlos Rivera

Rookie CO

With a family history in law enforcement, it was not until recently that Carlos gave into their advice to join the NMCD as a corrections officer. He has been in and out of work for the past few years, most recently holding a job in construction. Carlos is keenly aware that it’s going to take time to learn the ropes and he’s patiently eyeing a shot at climbing the ranks some day.

Carlos is not one that leaves things to chance when lives are on the line. He is not afraid to ask questions, and even sometimes, questions authority in order to keep everyone safe.
