The Lubbock County Detention Center will be up and running soon and they are actively hiring to fill over 90 positions. Chief Kelly Rowe says that they are looking to fill both clerical and correctional positions. For those interested in clerical positions, they must be over 18 and pass a background check. Correctional officers must also pass a background check and be over 21 years of age.
Chief Rowe says that experience is not necessary, "We don't need experience. We will provide all the training that they will need to get them prepared to do this job."
