Each and every one of you is a valuable resource! You can help all of your brothers and sisters, by talking to potential and former CO's who might want to come back to the NDOC. Here is what you can tell them: new hires will start around $57K a year, receive $7500 hiring bonus over the first year, COT's will auto progress to CO's at 6 months(15%raise), then receive a 5% raise at one year, uniform allowance in September and March of $1010 each, retention payments $500 every 3 months, double time and a half on holidays, shift differential for swing shift, top out base salary for officers by July 1, 2024 around $93K, and all the overtime they can work for the foreseeable future. Every officer hired is 2080 hours less mandatory overtime per year. All of this made possible by FOP, which all of our brothers and sisters should join based on what we have done and the protection we provide. Thank you all for your efforts and service! Be safe and take care of each other!
