Ready for 2018
January 10th is the beginning of the 2018 General Assembly session. NCPSO will be their speaking and lobbing on behalf of Virginia's front line workers of the Departments of Corrections and Juvenile Justice. First on the agenda is raising the salary of uniformed officers in order to help with retention and recruitment, but also because it is the right thing to do. Retention is the major problem confronting these departments today. The inability to attract and retain qualified uniformed employees is the result of a number of problems that has been with these departments for decades. In the mid 1980's state employees lost the cost of living increase that they received yearly. They also lost the merit increase that was received on their anniversary date as long as they met their expectations for the performance cycle. These increases help employees keep paste with the cost of living. After these yearly increases were taken away state employees have continually watch their standard of living grow smaller and smaller so that their salaries are no long competitive with their counterparts in the law enforcement arena as well as the private sector. Because of the low salary structure of the uniformed officers who have to police and control activities in these facilities, Many are force to work a second job in order to make ends meet, many more are eligible for public assistants (snaps). To add insult to injury, every time there has been any short fall in Virginia's budget every incoming Administration has chose budget cuts to make up for the shortfalls. This has led to positions being eliminated while others have been frozen or simply left vacant. For years now the Department of Corrections have maintain a vacancy of approximately 600 correctional officer positions. Many facilities in the DOC are forced to work so critically short of staff there are major security risk at these facilities that puts safety of staff and offenders at risk as well as the general public. The men and women who swear and oath to serve and protect the citizens of this Commonwealth can no longer be overlooked by those who occupy the Governor's Mansion or the legislative seats in the General Assembly. A priority must be made where these public safety professionals are concerned, everybody's safety depends on their situation being corrected.     Thank you for using the website!
