3rd Annual Lobby Day
Updated On: Oct 30, 2018

On January 25, 2012 Correctional Officers came to the General Assembly for lobby day. The officers quickly began building relationships with their elected officials and lying a path for coalition building. These men and women represented themselves and their profession with distinction. There were several pieces of legislation of interest. 1. Presumption was of great concern, the officers understand that they need the protections that this bill would provide, yet, they are the only uniform public safety group that are excluded and they are the ones that need this the most. 2. The Law Enforcement Officers Procedural Guarantee Act, again they are excluded from this bill. They also lobbied to protect their retirement and defined benefit plan. They brought attention to the fact that it is time to they need pay increases in order to stop their downward slide to the poverty level. All realized that in order to gain some of the things that you so rightly deserve many more of you will have to get involved in order to make your voices heard.
