INDEPENDENCE — Last summer, the Virginia Department of Corrections announced it would soon begin hiring correctional officers for the new state prison being built just outside of Independence to allow potential employees the opportunity to gain experience prior to the July 2010 opening.
Now — six months later — nobody has been hired and the department of corrections is unsure when hiring may take place.
According to DOC Director Gene Johnson, the department is continuing to work hard towards opening the new prison, including a plan to hire early.
