ALBANY – The State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision is offering retired corrections officers the opportunity to return to work on a part-time basis to fill a shortage of full-time officers.

State law allows a retiree “to continue to receive their full retirement allowance without loss, suspension or diminution while simultaneously earning up to $35,000 per calendar year in a position of public service,” said Kelly Ahearn, director of personnel for the department.

Retired security staff members must be off the job for at least six months but now more than four years.

Those part-timers will earn an hourly rate of $34.81, have a choice of correctional facilities at which they will work, have flexible shifts, and 40 hours of in-service training per year.
