According to a staff memo obtained by The Tennessean, Sate prison administrators plan to pay current prison guards and other employees a $1,000 bonus before the end of the year as part of an effort to keep them from quitting. The one-time bonuses affects 3,300 officers, at a cost that could go as high as $3.3 million. The Department hopes the bonuses will show correctional employees that they are appreciated and will help slow what has been a steady flow of employees leaving to find other jobs. Tennessee State Employees Association President Bryan Merritt showed support for the bonuses, but says it probably won’t be enough to stop officers from walking out the door. Merritt says the department still must fix staffing shortages that have affected the prison system for months.
