Probation officials face suspension
Managers tied to deceptive hiring process
Amid rising expectations that federal indictments are coming soon in the Probation Department hiring scandal, Commissioner Ronald P. Corbett, Jr., this week has informed more than a dozen senior managers that he plans to take disciplinary action against them for their role in a sham hiring process that systematically funneled jobs and promotions to politically connected candidates. This week, Corbett sent disciplinary letters to most of the 12 regional supervisors who oversaw the job interview process as well as other human resources employees.
