18 Fast facts, figures and findings Correctional officer positions can be rewarding, as well as stressful and hazardous. Most officers are employed in federal, state and local government prisons and jails. Employment opportunities are expected to be favorable. Paralegals and legal assistants work in the public and private sectors. Employment is projected to grow faster than average as employers try to reduce costs by hiring paralegals to perform tasks once performed by attorneys. Job opportunities are expected to be excellent for qualified law enforcement officers in most local police departments, while competition is expected for jobs in state and federal agencies. Work can be dangerous and stressful, but also very rewarding. Employment for social and human service assistants is projected to grow much faster than average for all occupations, but wages remain low. A bachelor s degree is not usually required for these jobs. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics 2008 Occupation Salary & Wages Figures RELATED OCCUPATIONS ENTRY AVERAGE PUBLIC SERVICE Correctional Officers and Jailers $35,401 $48,422 Legal Secretaries $28,038 $38,126 Legal Support Workers, All Other $32,656 $44,075 Paralegals and Legal Assistants $34,049 $49,795 Police and Sheriff s Patrol Officers $43,264 $55,182 Social and Human Service Assistants $18,366 $28,038 Social Workers, All Other $27,872 $50,024 Source: Florida state occupational employment and wage estimates provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. 16
