Earlier today we held our monthly meeting honoring our Officer and Employee of the Month honorees. Congratulations to Officer Walton Robinson (15 years) and Case Manager Debra Dixon (29.5 years). Kudos to these two for their dedication and hard work.
Sheriff Daron Hall also issued our Exceptional Service Ribbon to several officers for their actions while in the Justice A.A. Birch Building! Their timely response and immediate actions are credited for saving the lives of two individuals in crisis!
Congratulations to our Officer of the Month Corporal Shaquetta Branch! Cpl. Branch was nominated by her peers for her awareness and thorough searches during the intake process that prevents drugs from entering the facility!
Kudos to our Employee of the Month Stanford Woods! Nominated by his peers for taking the extra steps needed to ensure safe and orderly facility operations. While searching inmate mail, he located (later identified as Suboxone strips) compressed in the stack of paperwork.
Program Director Paul Mulloy & Work Release Monitor Michael Stratton both received our Exceptional Service coin for their lifesaving actions. They worked together to perform the Heimlich maneuver, and the object that was restricting individual’s breathing was successfully removed!
For their above and beyond efforts during the Last Minute Toy Store, Sheriff Hall recognized Ruby Joyner (Facility Administrator) and Sarah Ferrin (Training). They put in long hours during the event to maximize the holiday season for more than 2,000 families and 6,000 children.
Job well done to these three! Sgt. Witkus, Lt. Dial, and Lt. Conrad for their preparation/training efforts in opening the new Downtown Detention Center. They were also instrumental in identifying, and capturing the individual responsible for stealing security keys.
Each month we nominate a Super Tweeter! This person through any form of social media is our foremost online advocate and helps us spread the word about the great work being done by our officers/staff! Congratulations to our newest #SuperTweeter, Solomon Holley!
