Sarpy County approves new contract with Corrections employees

Entrance to Sarpy County Courthouse's Administration Wing

The Sarpy County Board of Commissioners today approved a three-year labor contract with the union that represents Sarpy County Department of Corrections employees. 

 “Maintaining a highly-trained, well-staffed department of corrections is a matter of public safety,” said Don Kelly, Chair of the Sarpy County Board of Commissioners. “Corrections Officers keep our community safe, they keep their fellow officers safe, and they keep the inmates in our facility safe.” 

The agreement between the county and the Fraternal Order of Police, Sarpy Lodge No. 90 sets the starting wage for Corrections Officers at $27 an hour.

 “In order to attract and retain professional, experienced corrections employees, Sarpy County has to be competitive with the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services and other counties while ensuring the protection of the taxpayer’s dollar. This contract does that,” Kelly said. 

The new contract will take effect July 1. 


  • Approved new contracts with County Administrator Dan Hoins and Chief Financial Officer William E. Conley.  
  • Presented Core Values Awards to Capt. Chris Culler. The awards recognize Sarpy County employees who exemplify the county's core values of Service, Respect, Vision, Inclusion and Accountability.
