Plans to hire five additional corrections officers dropped

By: Marc Stempka

BELLEFONTE, Pa. Centre County leaders said Thursday that plans to hire five additional corrections officers at the Centre County Correctional Facility have been dropped.

Officials said the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections pulled 24 inmates from the prison Wednesday, prompting county leaders to scrap their plans to hire the five additional personnel.

The PA DOC was paying $55 a day to Centre County to house their inmates, officials said. Without the additional inmates, the extra personnel was not needed.
