228 jobs open at Estonian prisons

Could Saku help?

Estonian prisons have been suffering from chronic lack of prison guards for years. Currently, 749 guards monitor 4,200 prisoners, leaving 228 vacant positions. The Ministry of Justice attributes the deficit to poor wages, though they note, on the positive side, that newer prisons require fewer guards.
