“We have seen much success with the quality of men and women that we have hired at previous military career fairs,” said Commissioner Brian Owens. “It is our duty to seek out the best staff for our department and we find military veterans to have the values and skills we are looking for in future employees.”

The GDC has one of the largest prison systems in the U.S. and is responsible for supervising nearly 55,000 state prisoners and more than 160,000 probationers. It is the largest law enforcement agency in the state with approximately 12,000 employees.
