Job Hunters Alert: Iowa Seeking 200 Corrections Personnel
Surprisingly, even in these times of ten percent unemployment and widespread state budgetary crises, Iowa’s Department of Corrections intends to hire about 200 personnel, mostly for work as corrections officers, but others for counselors, probation officers and residential officers. These much-needed new hires come about as the result of the loss of 362 employees from attrition and early retirement.
According to the Public Relations Director, “We want to get up to a staffing level that’s consistent with the number of inmates we have in the prison system.” While no one will actually be hired until July 1st, the DOC has already kicked off the process of finding the right people.
