Rookie Corrections Officers To Get Higher Salaries

Higher salaries for new corrections officers are in the works.

The Texas prison board voted today to increase salaries for rookie officers by ten percent.

Also, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice will offer a $1,500 recruitment bonus for officers who go to work at understaffed prisons.

In our area, the Clements, Neal and Jordan units are all understaffed.
