Criminal Justice Incentive Program (CJIP)

The Criminal Justice Incentive Program (CJIP), approved by the Legislature in 1977 and amended in 1980 and 1981, provides a monthly supplemental salary payment to Investigators, law enforcement and correctional officers to reward educational and other career development activities that go beyond minimum position requirements. The Bureau of State Payrolls (BOSP) is responsible for processing and auditing these payments. The CJIP System is a Payroll-by-Exception system. Specifically, once an employee is established in the CJIP System he/she will be continuously paid a set dollar amount until a change order is submitted via People First System (PF)  to either modify or delete the employee’s payment status. A CJIP pay record is input through the CJIP component of People First. This is done to first establish the officer’s master record on the CJIP Master File at BOSP, and later to process changes or terminations as necessary.

New Hires: In those cases where an officer is new to the program or has moved to a new office, he/she has to work a FULL month after becoming eligible for incentive pay. The CJIP payments are made a month behind, so a new employee who started July 1, 2012, will be paid in September 2012 for time worked in August 2012 because they have to work a full month before becoming eligible for a CJIP payment.

CJIP pay is handled as a supplemental payment. Employees receive their regular biweekly or monthly salary and then additional CJIP payments as appropriate.
