|Florida House Approves Lower Minimum Age For Corrections Officers|
The Florida House has unanimously passed a bill that allows 18-year old corrections officers in Florida.
The minimum age for a corrections officer in Florida is currently 19. The 18-year old minimum, if it becomes law, would apply not only to the state prison system, but also to county jails in an effort to solve staffing issues.
A similar bill is moving through the Senate. The effort is backed by the Florida Department of Corrections.
