Department of corrections offering 1000 dollar sign on bonus at Franklin CI

If you are looking for work, the Franklin correctional Institution in Carrabelle is hiring and the department of corrections is offering a 1000 dollar sign on bonus for new employees.

The bonuses are being offered at 17 facilities statewide, including the state prisons in Franklin and Gulf Counties.

The bonuses will be given to new hires upon completion of the correctional officer certification through either FDC or certain state colleges.

If you are already certified in law enforcement you can start working full time immediately or get paid while you attend training to earn your certification.
