COBA head: New DOC commissioner's recovery plan doesn't go far enough

Days after the Correction Officer’s Benevolent Association (COBA) filed a lawsuit against the New York City Department of Correction over "inhumane" working conditions at city jails, COBA President Benny Boscio Jr. spoke with the PIX11 Morning News. Boscio broke down the details behind the "deplorable" conditions alleged in the lawsuit. The lawsuit comes on the same day new D.O.C. Commissioner Vincent Schiraldi unveiled his post-COVID-19 program to improve conditions and address many of the issues cited in the suit. While part of the new plan is to hire 400 additional correction officers, but Boscio said that's not nearly enough. The union chief instead is calling on 2,000 new hires, as well as a decrease in the amount of inmates in each facility. However, Boscio said that it does seem like the new commissioner "wants to help us" and that his program is based around many of the issues COBA brought to his attention.
