19? You Can Be a Prison Guard, but No Smoking!

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — The minimum age to work as a correctional officer for the Mississippi Department of Corrections has been lowered from 21 to 19 as MDOC is seeking individuals who want to make corrections a career. The younger officers will be assigned to low-risk positions that have minimum direct contact with inmates. Applicants must have a high school diploma or GED and have no felony or domestic violence convictions. Some misdemeanor convictions may disqualify applicants as well. If you’re interested call (601) 359-5696 to schedule an appointment. Applications are being accepted at the three state prisons and online at mspb.ms.gov.
