Md. Offers $5K Incentive to New Corrections Officers

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services is offering new correctional officers $5,000 to join the department.

Secretary Stephen T. Moyer will announce the incentives program on Thursday in the Jail Industries building.

Recruits will receive $2,000 for completing officer training academy, and an additional $3,000 after completing a one-year probationary period.

The department already offers $500 to officers who refer successful candidates.

Officials hope the incentives will help ease understaffing woes.
