With dwindling budgets and therefore personnel, many criminal justice agencies have, of necessity, implemented testing by non-correctional persons. In an era when some 90% of persons under supervision by probation, parole and correctional officers are male, yet a growing percentage of officers are female, a situation has arisen in which male officers can spend an inordinate amount of time in the bathroom. In the belief that their time is better spent in other forms of supervision, the implementation of persons specifically to collect specimens is growing in popularity. With carefully planned random testing programs, hours in which to collect specimens may be circumscribed and as long as a program is not predictable, deterrence may be maximized.
BioTech Screening has been hiring collectors for various correctional agencies. Thus far, we have only hired veterans and this continues to be our goal. We have been able to hire several veterans and paid them a sustainable wage.
