The Illinois Department of Corrections has announced they will be rolling out a new line of uniforms for its correctional staff. Many issues have been voiced by the staff in regards to the new uniform, this including but not limited to the lack of a professional look, safety concerns, and the possible vunlerable appearance for female staff, and the cost.
So the department is going to spend 3.5 million taxpayer dollars to save less than 70$ per employee per set of uniforms for 9000 employees. So unless the department plans on the uniforms lasting a 100-Years or hiring 45,000 new employees. This move does not make sense for a state suffering with major budget woes.
