The Georgia Department of Labor’s LaFayette Career Center is hosting two recruiting events to help fill about 45 correctional officer positions at Hays State Prison in Trion, a news release states.

The first event will be March 12 from 2-6 p.m. at the Chattooga County Civic Center in Summerville. The second will be March 13 from 12:30-4:30 p.m. in the community room at the LaFayette Housing Authority in LaFayette.

Correctional officer experience is not necessary, but applicants must be at least 18 and bring with them a high school diploma, GED certificate, test scores and a valid for on identification.

The starting salary for correctional officers at the prison is $26,754, with as much as 10 percent more possible for those with military service experience.
