    NYSDOCS WEBSITE INFORMATION

    $ 34,329 - hiring rate

    $ 200 - Lump sum paid after eight weeks of training

    $ 41,348 - After completion of 26 full bi-weekly payroll periods

    Annual salary advancements are based on performance evaluations.

    Employees are also eligible for pay raises as negotiated by their certified bargaining agent.

    Additional compensation is provided through a pre-shift briefing premium payable each payroll period in addition to base salary. This currently amounts to $66.43 per payroll period.

    An inconvenience pay program is in place for evening and night shift employees.

    Appointees who work in the five boroughs of New York City or in Nassau, Suffolk, Rockland or Westchester Counties will receive an additional $3,025 annual downstate adjustment. Appointees who work in Dutchess, Orange or Putnam Counties will receive an additional $1,126 annual Mid-Hudson adjustment.

    (((We also receive steps for 1st 7 years of career, then you have a 10, 15, 20, and 25 year step. I believe Job Rate is around $57k after 7 years.)))

    Fellow NYS bros, help me out if I am missing anything here!!!

    CO4NY, was right on the base salary, overtime depends on the jail your at/shift you want to work.. My last jail OT was easy to get on 7-3 shift, but hard to come by on other shifts... My newest jail you can get overtime any shift just about any day you want it..

    I now a lot of older officers [20+ yrs] who are gonna be up over 90,000, but thats with lots of ot..

    Base pay is $15.80 an hour, plus .35 an hour shift diff. And we get roll-call pay, which is really 30 minutes of your base pay for being there 10 minutes early. Which equals to like $17.13 an hour if you add it all up, and thats rookie pay. We get 2 raises a year.

    Why bring up this "Let's see how depressed we can make Bowles" thread again?

    You guys make me sick!

    Now that's outta the way, NC Officers start out around $26,000 per year and top out around $42,000.

    My take home is $1,800 per month. My insurance cost me nothing, but to add my wife it would cost me $415.00 per month dropping my take home to a little less than $1,400.

    Guess that explains the festering cesspool that is many of the staff of the NC DOC.

    The local jail authority starts at $29k/year and the state DOC starts at $25.9K/year for the prison farm.

    I'm guessing the cost of living makes up for it. It better, man I would not work in a jail for 26K starting in Western Washington.

    Dude, I don't know people survive on salaries like that.

    If it ain't 35k or better, I'm not going to bother! And I don't even have many bills...I don't know how people with mortgages survive.

    Here in Sonoma County, our top pay is about $35/hr. With all the OT, we had about 25 deputies pull in over $100k. I'm in my 2nd year and I should bring in almost $80k this year. I don't know how we stand compared to other agencies, but I feel like we need a pay raise.

    I believe you will find that the best paid Correctional/Detention Officers will be found on either coast. I base this on pay versus their counter-parts working the streets. I say this because coastal states seem to have advanced labor laws including collective bargaining rights (i.e. "Unions").

    I have worked in county corrections in both California and now Texas. A deputy's base pay averaged 9% more than his correctional counterpart in the jail back in California (at least where I worked). Where I work now, in Texas, the difference in pay between deputies and detention officers is 50% and climbing every year.

    Texas is a "right to work" state. That's another way of saying "Unions: stay out!" Our county commissioners give sizeable pay increases to the peace officer positions and say "you'll take nothing and like it" to the jail officers.

    It could be worse: I could be a Texas Department of Criminal Justice (aka: Corrections) officer making $22,000.00 a year to start.

    In Hawaii, I make about 3600 a month without OT. But family medical is 400 a month...and cost of living is high here. OT is around 300 dollars a shift, so working 3 or 4 a month kind of helps.Our Deputy Sheriffs make less than us, with not much OT, and no holiday pay. Oh and there is a one dollar an hour NS diff. for 2nd and 3rd watch.

    I'm just starting out, but in NJ pay is as following.

    Correction Officer Recruit Salary is $45,548.97

    Senior Correction Officer(after 1 year) Salary range is $50,105.29 to $72,136.39

    This does not take any OT into consideration.

    From what I have heard they are working on a new contract, any current guys should be able to chime in.

    I did make a mistake I said 53,380 what I meant is 53,320, that is it until I get my fifteen year step or we get a new contract, with this state I don't know which one will come first.

    The extra money might sound nice but be prepared to stay at that institution for couple of years. Transfers are hard to get in CDCR.
