Carney calls for 75 more officers, new equipment in prisons Matthew Albright , Jessica Masulli Reyes , Brittany Horn and Esteban Parra , The News Journal
Gov. John Carney wants to add 75 new correctional officers and buy new safety equipment for prison staffers after an officer was killed last month during a hostage crisis at James T. Vaughn Correctional Center near Smyrna.
In the short term, Carney has authorized $340,000 to purchase new protective gear and communications equipment. His administration also has increased the frequency of random security sweeps at Vaughn by specialized teams.
For the longer term, Carney said he will ask the General Assembly to hire 50 new correctional officers at Vaughn and 25 new officers at Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution. That would cost an estimated $2.3 million.
The governor also wants to spend $1.2 million next year on new safety equipment.
