November 21, 2017 (Lincoln, Neb.) – Today, Director Scott R. Frakes announced that the $2500 hiring bonus, scheduled to end on November 17th, will continue through January 2, 2018. The hiring bonus was announced on October 2nd as a targeted recruiting strategy to decrease vacancies at the Nebraska State Penitentiary (NSP) and the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution (TSCI).

New employees hired for NSP or TSCI receive the $2500 bonus, paid out quarterly over their first year of service. During the last 45 days, 50 new team members have been hired and will receive the bonus.

“The hiring bonus has been well received,” Director Frakes said. “As we give more future team members the opportunity to take advantage of this benefit, we hope to continue to decrease the vacancies and reduce the need for mandatory overtime at NSP and TSCI.”
