Bonus Checks for Prison Guards

Extra cash is being dished out to keep oklahoma prison guards on the job.

the state says some guards will be getting a 12 hundred dollar bonus in an effort to stop a high turnover rate.

The first three levels of correctional officers will be eligible for the bonus if they have less than three years continuous service.

if a new prison guard remains on the job for two years they will get a five thousand dollar bonus.

Officials say they are trying to get guards to stay, because when one leaves it puts a crunch on the department and other guards have to work extra shifts and on their days off.
