Corrections Officers

Employment in this field is expected to grow more slowly than the average for all occupations through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Budgetary limitations and declining crime rates will lead to the decrease in demand for corrections officers. Many states are also leaning toward shorter prison sentences for those convicted of lesser or nonviolent crimes. Some job openings will occur from a characteristically high turnover rate, as well as from the need to fill vacancies caused by the death or retirement of older workers. Traditionally, correction agencies have difficulty attracting qualified employees due to job location and salary considerations.
