ew York’s correction officers put their lives on the line every day to keep our communities safe. But now Albany wants these men and women to make more sacrifices by balancing the budget on their backs.

Since 2009, 11 prisons have closed, and more than 2,000 jobs have been cut. Now, just as our economy recovers, Albany wants to close two more — jamming more criminals into fewer prisons and putting correction officers in even more danger. Albany even wants to break its own rules and close these facilities in 60 days instead of the legally required one-year notice. If this plan is approved, correction officers will be forced to make a choice: Quit your job or uproot your entire family. Albany should be protecting those who protect us, not hurting them.
