State prison guards will receive a boost to their salaries.
According to our partners at NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, the Louisiana State Civil Service Commission voted Wednesday to give correctional officers pay raises.
The raises will range from two to 10 percent.
The salary hike is in response to concerns that low pay in the prison system threatened the safety of inmates and staff.
