Quote of the Day 9/30/2015

“Despite our current budget issues, we need to increase corrections pay immediately. Our corrections officer pay is one of the lowest in the nation. The low pay coupled with the inherent danger that comes with the job pushes people away from a career in corrections and new recruits drop out quickly. In fact, we’re losing upwards of 50 percent of new recruits in less than a year due to workplace violence.”
