Are you willing to supervise as many as 200 inmates by yourself? To.. assess and react appropriately to extremely violent situations such as rapes, suicides and.. stabbings? To work with inmates who have communicable diseases such as AIDS, Tuberculosis or.. Hepatitis?.. If you answered yes to all of these application questions, then you may qualify to become a.. correctional officer for the State of Oklahoma.. For your valuable service, the State will pay you.. $11.. 83 an hour to start, less than most of your local convenience store clerks and less than any.. other state corrections officer in the country, save perhaps Mississippi.. The employees of the Department of Corrections deserve a pay raise.. Thirty percent of them qualify.. for food stamps and 85% qualify for the federal free and reduced school lunch program.. These correctional officers, probation and parole officers, case managers, and others, protect us.. from the most dangerous of our convicted criminals.. A recent study found that 31% of correctional.. officers in the U.. S.. suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which is 20% higher than.. Iraq War veterans.. These men and women deal with issues.. on a daily basis that most of us cannot even imagine.. And yet, they have not had a pay increase of any kind since 2006 when all state employees were last.. given a raise.. In fact, they actually had their.. pay cut when they endured 11 furlough days in fiscal year 2011 costing the average employee $1,500.. But the low salaries are not the only reason our corrections employees’ morale is at its lowest.. point in history.. Low staffing levels, constant mandatory overtime and the resulting stress are.. driving our best employees away.. Five years ago there were more than 2,000 correctional officers on.. the job.. Today there are about 1,600.. Yet during this decline the prison population has soared at.. an unsustainable rate.. Officers at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary, the state’s only maximum- security prison, are.. required to work four 16-hour double-shifts per week because of the staff shortage.. The average.. probation and parole officer is required to make monthly contact with a caseload of 150 offenders.. or more.. Staff is at a breaking point.. It is time for State leadership to recognize that our corrections employees provide an invaluable.. service to Oklahoma and deserve their respect and.. support.. We know legislators have the money this year to help.. Employees who put in the kind of hours and hard work that DOC.. employees do should not qualify for food stamps and should not depend on the federal government to.. provide their children’s school lunches.. The Legislature cannot continue to finance a prison system on the backs of its employees.. With the.. fourth highest incarceration rate in the country, it is time for lawmakers to stop increasing our.. prison population and allow the Department to properly manage its staff, offenders and facilities,.. making us all a lot safer.. The brave men and women of the.. Department deserve better and they deserve a raise.. Category:.. Uncategorised.. Playing Politics with Prison.. Published: Monday, 22 July 2013 18:04.. This year’s legislative session ended with the usual thud for employees of the Department of Corrections.. The one agency-requested bill approved by lawmakers this session authorizes the Director of the agency to give  ...   Assessment and Reception Center in March admitted that the inmates beating him could have killed him if they’d chosen to.. He’s thankful they didn’t, and legislators should be too.. More and more of the money that previously went to the DOC to run state facilities is now directed to be handed over to private prisons, which have minimal oversight and don’t save the state any money.. An agency-requested bill to require private prisons to disclose information, like details of what happened at last year’s riot in Sayre, never even managed to get out of the Senate.. Profiting from the incarceration of our citizens is morally wrong and in some states isn’t even legal.. Oklahoma currently has more than 5,000 inmates in private facilities, a number that will continue to grow if this administration has its way.. There is a clear and present danger to the State’s corrections employees and it’s not just from the inmates.. It’s the private prisons and their benefactors at the Oklahoma Capitol.. Major Threat to Our Pension System.. Published: Sunday, 28 April 2013 14:33.. While there are only five weeks left in session, the Governor and state Treasurer are planning to enact massive changes to all of the state's pension systems, including yours, this session.. As last minute as it is, they have still not even provided the bill to review, so we don't know all of the specifics, but they have provided the following details about their plan:.. All new state employees will receive lower retirement payments.. The pay certainly isn't why people come to work for the DOC.. If we think it's hard to recruit employees now, what's going to happen when we slash benefits?.. Read more: Major Threat to Our Pension System.. Legislative Update.. Published: Thursday, 28 February 2013 08:56.. House and Senate bills have now been heard in committees and are going to the floor of each chamber and I'd like to take this opportunity to catch everyone up on how some of the bills we've been working on have proceeded.. We've had some victories, but it's still very early in the process.. HB.. 2146 by Hickman appropriates $12.. 2 million to the Department, as requested, to provide pay raises.. The bill raises the hiring rate for CO's from $11.. 83 to $14 per hour.. The bill also provides a 5% pay raise to all classified personnel.. DOC says they will adjust the pay bands, accordingly, so as to avoid the salary compression that would result if they didn't.. This bill's future is in doubt, since the Appropriations Chair in the House is not the author of the bill and since no deal has been reached with the Senate or Governor.. Read more: Legislative Update.. News.. OCP Meets with House Leadership.. Published: Thursday, 07 February 2013 11:27.. This week OCP staff and Board members met with House Speaker T.. W.. Shannon s office.. Among the topics of discussion were the lack of available DOC beds for the rapidly growing offender population, the low-pay and historic low staffing levels, and the need for increased funding for infrastructure.. We also met with Representative Cleveland, the Vice Chair of Public Safety Appropriations and the legislator for LARC and JHCC.. Representative Cleveland has expressed a great interest in working with OCP and its members this session.. We intend to keep an open dialogue with leadership throughout session to ensure they understand your needs.. 2013 Legislative Agenda.. OCP Response to State of the State Speech..
