NYC Jail Guards Hired Despite Gang Ties and Criminal Records.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - More than one-third of jail guards recently hired by the New York City Department of Correction had problems including gang affiliations, criminal histories and significant psychological problems, the city Department of Investigation said on Thursday.

In a review of more than 150 recent applicants, the department found red flags that should have disqualified more than a third of them from policing the problem-plagued city jails or, at the very least, prompted further review, the report said. Instead, all were hired.

Investigators found hiring practices in such disarray that staff in charge could not decipher the applicant evaluation system, which used a scale of 1 to 5, saying they were not sure whether a 1 or a 5 was the best score.

The DOI report said 10 of the new hires had been arrested more than once, 12 had been previously rejected by the New York Police Department, including six for psychological reasons, and 79 had relatives or friends who were current or former inmates. Despite changes in the screening process, the report said dozens of staff still had gang affiliations.

2. Nah this goes back decades before even Koch

NY corrections is a sad joke among NY LEO's. So many incidents over the years of guards bringing in guns and drugs, cell phones, etc.

Every CO I've met was a shady fuck, or drunk.

5. Thats too bad

When I was first in the Navy, I met a girl who worked at Stonybrook (?) College in Long Island and we were an Item for a while (long distance never works out) but I did visit a few times and she would ask if I wanted to go into the City, I was always like..Uh...no thanks...LOL

So my Contact with NYC is 95 on the Cross Bronx Expwy When I would go on Leave to visit my Parents...*s*

I hope I don't offend any New Yorkers, Its just not for me, I don't knock it but I don't think I'd feel comfortable there

3. Probably in the name of diversity.

Either some consequence of affirmative action or quotas. Possibly just gross negligence. Maybe all three... it is new jersey.
