More DOC Cuts are on the Horizon

January 16th, 2009 by flanews

Even after laying off 66 probation officers, the Department of Corrections isnt done cutting positions.

Wednesday lawmakers voted to cut DOC spending by 7 million dollars. Department heads have already put a freeze on new hirers and suspended training to save money. DOC Spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said the department is trying to decide where to cut next.

We are looking at other areas, chaplains, education, teachers, law clerks and we are looking at other areas. We anticipate this could impact every section of the department, said Plessinger.

Lawmakers and law enforcement advocates are asking the governor to veto the DOC cuts.
