The California prison system is hiring 7,000 correctional officers

The California Department of Corrections stated it will need to hire approximately 7,000 prison officers over the next three years to fill current and future vacancies statewide.  The state has about 25,000 fewer inmates in its 34 adult prisons owing to a two-year-old program that sends more convicted offenders to local jails.  Attrition is draining the prison-officer ranks with an average 150 retiring each month. California employs about 28,000 full-time parole and prison officers.

The job application process is a little on the slow side. Each applicant must have the minimum qualifications (U.S. citizenship, high school diploma,  21 years-old at time of appointment, pass a drug-test screening and can legally own and use a firearm).  Candidates must then pass a written test, go through a qualifications assessment, complete a physical fitness test, vision test and psychological evaluation; plus a medical examination and a background investigation.  The whole process, from application to entrance to the department’s 16-week academy, can take up to one year. Base wage for academy cadets is $3,050 a month. New correctional officers can earn $3,774 per month, plus overtime and full-benefits.  Contact The California Department of Corrections for more details and to receive an application.
