ALL CORRECTIONS EMPLOYEES GOT A NOTE
Gov. Michael Dunleavy penned a thank you letter to all employees of the Department of Corrections today after the Spring Creek Correctional Center riot was quelled. Here’s what he said:
Dear Department of Corrections Officers, Medical Personnel, and Staff:
I am extremely grateful for the professionalism, quick action, and dedication of the Correctional Officers, Staff, and Medical Personnel in response to the violent outbreak at Spring Creek Correctional Center the evening of May 7. The coordinated immediate response made it possible for officers to manage and diffuse 62 angry inmates determined to destroy and harm as much property and personnel as possible. The care and consideration exhibited by Medical Personnel ensuring everyone was examined and attended to during, and after, this emergent situation.
The positive outcome of training, teamwork, and dedication is much appreciated.
Governor Michael J. Dunleavy
