Correctional Officers Needed in Texas

Posted: Updated:
    Career opportunities for Correctional Officers in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice are on the rise.

    A seminar took place Thursday night at the Vernon Regional Training Center located on Central Freeway East in Wichita Falls.

    We spoke with Jim Anders with the James V. Allred Prison and he shared with us some benefits of being employed with the TDCJ. 

    "It's a good field to work in. We have a lot of openings, a good employment opportunity in the area. You know Wichita Falls is a great area, all the surrounding cities, and we offer good employment with great benefits and you get to stay local," Anders said.

    A recruiter was on hand to explain the current pay plan, outline the employee benefits and retirement program.      

    Candidates must be at least 18-years-old and possess a high school diploma or G.E.D. equivalent.
