Beginning next year, 2012, 4 prisons in our region will have over 450 staff retirement eligible, with almost 1/2 of them mandatory retirement. Many of those staff, myself included, would welcome the chance to go back and work part time. We're already trained, have had background checks, etc. We can monitor phone calls, help in the business office, work in HRM, and at the camps as well. We could be unescorted volunteers or contract staff. No, it wouldn't hurt staffing, it would augment it.
