New in 2024, the DOC has lowered the minimum age requirement for corrections officer trainee positions to 18. Previously, the age requirement for trainee positions was set at 21 years old.

In addition, the department has secured a waiver of the Pennsylvania residency requirement for corrections officer job titles at all of the Commonwealth’s 24 state correctional institutions. The change allows the DOC to recruit prospective corrections officers from neighboring states.
