|By ktva.com- Lauren Maxwell|
State budget cuts have dominated the news for months, but one state department has money to spend. The Alaska Department of Corrections is looking to hire dozens of officers for a new department called Pre-trial Services.
Pre-trail Services is a direct offshoot of Senate Bill 91, the legislation that made big changes to Alaska’s Criminal Codes. The new rules mean many people who’ve been charged with crimes will be no longer be held in jail while they wait for their trials or sentencing dates.
Pre-trail Services Officers are responsible for determining who’s a good candidate for release, as well as monitoring people to make sure they show up in court.
