More than 250 corrections employees arrested since 2013

August 27th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

More than 253 employees at Maryland's corrections department have been arrested since January 2013, and more than 200 of them are still employed, the department head told state officials Wednesday. Stephen Moyer, secretary of the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, spoke while seeking approval from the Board of Public Works to eliminate 63 jobs in human resources in the department. The move is needed to streamline a flawed hiring and disciplinary process, he said. Now, the department lacks administrative measures needed to prevent people with some "pretty outrageous" charges from working in the department, which has about 11,000 employees.
