CDCR to hire about 7,000 correctional officers

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) in a press release today said it expects to hire bout 7,000 correctional officers over the next three years.

The hires are due to an increase in retirements.

An outflow of  1,800 officers retiring annually has led to an urgent need, in some cases, to fill the positions statewide.
CDCR said new cadets get paid while they attend the state correctional academy. They also start earning health, dental and vision benefits and start accumulating retirement credits.
Job requirements:
•    High school diploma
•    Proof of U.S. citizenship
•    At least 20 years of age; must be 21 at time of appointment
•    Pass a drug test screening
•    Provide history of law-abiding behavior
•    Legally be able to own, posses and have custody or control of a firearm or other weapons     authorized by CDCR

Candidates will be tested and will undergo physical exams and a background investigation.

Then, there will be more training for those hired.
