Has salary been mentioned?

Post by NJScuba » Mon Aug 26, 2019 3:29 pm

Has anyone been given any figures as to what the starting pay is? If it's too low, then continuing with this may not be feasible.

Academy salary it $40,000?
The announcement said academy salary is $34,000 and $40,000 is first year salary.
Has it gone up since?

When I had my home interview I was asked if $640 a week would be sufficient enough to live off and then starting pay is $40,000

Juvenile Justice Commission gets paid full salary in the academy, NJ DOC does not.

BOTH JJC and DOC get payed the same rate in the academy Now, DOC did away with the reduced academy stipend awhile ago.

Well, getting rich isn't my objective. Plus, I hope to use the correctional officer position as a means of getting my foot in the door and hopefully moving up the ladder. Being 50 years old and making really good money right now, it's a tough choice. But I'm sick of a job I hate and would love to finally get into a field that a major illness prevented me from joining when I was younger.

NJ website says $34,000 for Academy with the correctional police officer title.
Is that not correct?
