        A Look Back
        • By Siwan Sinjar
          Associate Warden


          With 2019 ahead of us, we're putting 2018 behind us. However, all the things that occurred in 2018 will not be forgotten. There were incredible improvements made to the department as a whole, but not without their challenges and the obstacles along the way. This year saw the implementation of new badge numbers. Two new tactics courses to further train the department's officers. A revamp of the Correctional Sergeant Academy, formerly known as the Sergeant Training Program. An entirely new way that the

          This year the department transitioned from being SADOC to being SADCR. With the new department name, a plethora of changes came with it. New badge numbers. New training courses. A fresh look at a sergeant academy. The revitalization of two units; SSU and EOU. Department-wide salary increase. Just to name some of the changes made to the department this year. The changes are still coming and the department's administrative personnel are still working tirelessly to make SACF a better workplace.

          To bring it back to this month, the department is currently undergoing some changes in the Recruitment & Evaluation Unit (REU), Departmental Training Unit (DTU) and the academy process for cadets as a whole. The way applicants are accepted as cadets and progress towards being an officer will be streamlined and made easier, not only for every individual cadet but also for the REU and DTU staff.

          The Field Training Program (FTP) was released this month, which will serve to streamline the process of recently inducted cadets and their progress from Correction Officer I to Correction Officer II. They will be partnered up with a Field Training Officer (FTO) for three different phases. The FTO will teach and evaluate the officer, who gets given more autonomy in each subsequent FTP phase. At the end of which they are recommended for a promotion.

          • Recruitment & Evaluation Unit
            The Recruitment & Evaluation Unit (REU) has changed its Commander. The veteran member of the unit, Sergeant Elizabeth Rochester, who formerly was a Senior Recruitment Officer, will now serve as the commander of the Recruitment & Evaluation Unit. Sergeant Rochester is taking over for Lieutenant Roy Orr, the former REU Commander. The REU works to evaluate and recruit cadets into the ranks of the department.

            Parole Operations Unit
            The Parole Operations Unit (POU) has been going through a lot of different commanders since the departure of former-Captain Theresa Rosewood. Recently promoted Sergeant Katie Hayes was appointed the POU Commander, taking over for Warden Aubrey Taylor, who will still oversee the unit as the Division Chief. The POU works to rehabilitate inmates as parolees back in society.

            Departmental Training Unit
            Sergeant Elizabeth Rochester was also appointed the Assistant Commander of the Departmental Training Unit (DTU), who will work together with Associate Warden Siwan Sinjar, the Commander of DTU, to further train officers of the department in advanced training. Sergeant Rochester is a senior member of the training unit and will continue to instruct officers from her new position.

            • December 2
              A fight escalates between two a group of Caucasian inmates and a group of African-American inmates in the General Population Yard. Officers respond with less lethal launchers and tear gas to get control of the situation. However, when the group of white inmates used make-shift knives to attack the opposite group, the use of lethal firepower was authorized for the correctional staff. A shot from an M1A Tower Rifle from the officer on the yard tower caused all the inmates in the yard to cease fighting. The instigators were segregated and one inmate died as a result of the fight.

              December 5
              During the evening shift in Department A, Housing Unit 1, the inmates in the housing unit were ordered to return to their cells, when two groups formed in the dayroom of the housing unit. The inmates were all given several warnings to return to their cells. Make-shift weapons were instantly brought into the fight between the inmates. Tear gas was deployed into the housing unit, while officers prepared lethal firepower to respond. Inmates were informed of lethal firepower being used, at which point the inmates ceased the fight. The housing unit was brought back under control, and investigators from Special Services were called in to investigate the incident.
              • December 9
                During the evening shift in Department A, Housing Unit 1, a confrontation between African-American inmates escalates into a fight, when one inmate is trapped between two other inmates on the stairs to the upper tier. Insults are thrown between the inmates, and orders are given by the officers for the inmates to return to their cells. When the fight became physical, less lethal launchers were used by correctional staff to defuse the situation. Officers were quick to act and brought the housing unit under control within minutes. One inmate was treated in the infirmary for his injuries.

                December 17
                In Department A, Housing Unit 1, two inmates deliberately obstructed the view of a cell on the upper tier. Two inmates came out of the cell carrying an inmate, then proceeded to throw the inmate over the railing. The officer in the control tower ordered inmates in the housing unit to prone out on the ground. Subsequently, every uninvolved inmate was ordered to return to their cells. The inmates responsible were questioned before being segregated. The injured inmate was treated in the infirmary and is still recovering.

                  The department has seen a lot of difficulties in the field, while facing obstacles as changes have been implemented administratively. With changes being made to the recruitment process, there have been just as many changes to the Recruitment & Evaluation Unit, which have been spearheaded by its new Commander, Sergeant Elizabeth Rochester, who is being awarded Officer of the Month for December 2018.

                    • Welcome to the monthly CompStat for December 2018. The CompStat system was first adopted in law enforcement use by the NYPD in 1994. Its purpose was to track down crime, pinpoint it, and thus be able to methodically and accurately root out violent crime in the city. Since then, CompStat has expanded to differing purposes and different departments throughout America. The SADCR tracks the following occurrences to target improvement of the allocation of the department's resources:
                      • —Staffing (Increases/decreases in employment levels)
                        —Violent Crime (Class I CRC Offenses)
                        —Contraband (Amount of contraband confiscated on facility grounds)
                        —Lockdowns (Amount of times the facility entered lockdown in a month)
                        —Parole Program
                        —Inmate Work Program
