Employee of the Month

Congratulations to Mike Boyd and Anna Brawley on being ERDCC’s May employees of the month!!!

Per FUM Crews “I would like to nominate Mike Boyd for Employee of the Month.  The past several weeks have been particularly trying for housing unit 5.  Through no fault of their own, and due to unforeseen circumstances, we eventually ended up with no classification staff in house but myself.  During these weeks, Mike took it upon himself to spend any time he could helping with the day to day operations of the housing unit.  This included picking up and delivering the mail, conduct violations that needed to be done in house, and in Ad Seg, office hours and thankfully helping me remember the things I needed to do!  He did this without being asked.  In addition, his self-sufficiency and knowledge of case management was extremely beneficial to me.  He required little management which gave me time to focus on helping officers when needed, preparing and completing major violations, and completing my duties within the house. 

I would like to add his actions were very impressive to me and he really was invaluable to this house since the beginning of February.  I would love to see him be presented with this award, as he is definitely deserving.”

Anna Brawley: “You have been nominated due to your outstanding work ethic and your willingness to take on any job assignments for the good of the institution.  During your time with the department, you have made great strides in improving the flow of yard movements in order to maintain control of mass movements.  You are always willing to share your knowledge of policy and job duties with fellow staff. You consistently assist with training new officers. You are always willing to assist when the institution is short of staff by not only completing your own job duties, but also by assisting with mainline and conducting security checks throughout the camp.  Your positive attitude and willingness to go above and beyond for your department is a great example of your work ethic. You demonstrate professionalism when dealing with all staff and are a true asset to ERDCC.

Your job performance exemplifies a Department Of Corrections professional in your work ethics and attitude relating to your job responsibilities. You are a team player and you set a great example for your coworkers.”

Employee of the Month

Custody
CO II Michelle Basham

COIII Basham was nominated by COII Mishler “CO-III Michelle Basham deserves to be recognized for her years of assistance to staff members no matter the task. During this daunting time for the entire facility here at ERDCC CO-III Basham has pushed herself to assist in all the ways that she can. Many occasions after working a 16 or more hour day she would contact the facility to see if someone who was mandated needed relief. CO-III Basham would then rest for a couple of hours and then return to work to do all that she can to help. On several occasions while CO-III Basham was exhausted and heading out of the institution a radio call was made pertaining to a situation and she would turn around a respond as quickly as she could. CO-III Basham is the kind of supervisor that leads by example. Her knowledge of policy allows her to assist new staff in learning how to properly do the job of a Correctional Officer along with helping guide them away from pitfalls that can occur. CO-III Basham after all of the years that she has worked for the Department of Corrections takes pride in what she does and how she conducts herself. When you need someone to talk to she is always willing to help. She checks on staff to make sure they know that the situation they are going through they are not alone and that she is there to help them. On many occasions she has helped me through many tough moments. It is because of leaders like CO-III Basham that we as a department and a family will succeed."

Non-Custody
OSA Tiffany Bridgeman

OSA Bridgeman was nominated by IAC Zimmer “I would like to acknowledge and thank Tiffany Bridgeman for her dedication to her peers both custody and non-custody.  Tiffany is always willing to go above and beyond her assigned duties to assist anywhere she can lend a hand.  I know she has assisted to help maintain transfer files in records from the housing units, helped keep housing unit 3 up to date with the OSA duties, assisted with watching offenders on the food service lines, and assisted the food service officers with institutional count when short staffed in that area.  She is able to offer assistance to many while maintaining her own job responsibilities at an exceptional level.  On top of all of that she is an intricate member of the Personnel Club serving as the Vice President and completes that role with excellence.  Tiffany, I just wanted you to know I appreciate all you do and I know many others do, as well.”

On 14 March 2021 a Correctional Officer at ERDCC tragically lost his battle with PTSD. CO-I Jacob McFarland started working for the Department of Corrections on 08 June 2020. While working for the Department of Corrections he was a vital member of the Administrative Segregation team. He was also a member of our CERT team. Our facility is in a staffing crisis currently and he would work 16 hour days 5 days a week without hesitation. His dedication to his fellow staff members is what makes the Department of Corrections a family and a team no matter the classification of the staff member. CO-I McFarland was also a United States Army Veteran. His father, Matthew McFarland, works in our GP Education. The tragic loss of CO-I McFarland took a toll on his family and co-workers.

I just received an update about a puppies for parole dog that was adopted a couple of months ago. His name here was Double Dew. He was adopted by Phoenix Behavioral Health as a therapy dog. I wanted to share the message that was sent to Stray Rescue from Phoenix Behavioral Health with ERDCC staff so that staff can see that the P4P program not only trains dogs to help them get adopted by their forever home, but therapy groups are also looking at Puppies for Parole dogs to assist in their therapy programs. I want to extend a huge “Thank you!” to all staff at ERDCC for supporting the Puppies for Parole program. All dogs should have the opportunity to have a forever home with a loving family. This program could not be as successful as it has been without the help of staff!

Hi Training Team,

I just wanted to reach out to let you know that Double Dew (now known as Chance) has been successful! He passed his AKC Canine Good Canine Test, earning CGC credentials behind his name and has been certified as a Therapy dog through Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs recognized by the AKC.

Thank you for all your hard work and it has been a wonderful journey adopting him. He has been brightening the lives of our clients.

 I encourage staff to look at the photos on the I drive and if interested in any P4P dog, to complete an online application at www.strayrescue.org When completing an application please list the name of the institution and the name of the dog that you are interested in. All information is listed in the Department's Puppies for Parole website.

Training

Coming in March: If you are interested in being a trainer this class is for you! The basic trainer skills enhancement program will offer the beginning trainer a look at foundation skills that will assist them in presenting a learner-centered program. Featured in this module are concepts in adult learning and learning preferences as well as, the application of delivery techniques needed to make a quality training presentation. It will be held at ERTC March 2nd. If you are interested, please make arrangements with your supervisor in order to attend. If you have questions or need special accommodations, please contact

Josh Bess at (573) 218-6171 prior to the training date.

Any staff member, currently with their training skills development training and the desire to become an adjunct trainer, we have a great opportunity to achieve that goal. ERTC will be hosting the ECSI T4T class on March 8 and 9, room 3. Class will begin at 8:30 each day. This is the New Instructor training or for those who have let theirs expire. 

 If you are interested in attending this class, clear it with your supervisor and send us your name, and we’ll get you scheduled. With the amount of staff turnover and the lack of training opportunities during 2020, we’re in need of instructors and could really use anyone willing to assist the training department.  

If you have any training questions, contact Mary Hankins, James Millstead or Kerry Klein in the Training Building

I would like to remind all staff about the meet and greet guidelines for the dogs. If you have  any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact, Mike Miller at ext. 2706. The program does accept donations from staff such as treats, toys and we can always use waste bags. If you are interested in adopting a pup, please contact Mike Miller or contact Shari Baney through Stray Rescue at http://www.strayrescue.org

When  a dog-in-training has a neckerchief around his neck, he is working and should not be approached.

WHEN NO NECKERCHIEF IS ON, YOU MAY ASK THE TRAINER IF IT IS A GOOD TIME TO INTERACT WITH THE DOG.  Based on the dog-in-training actions at that moment, the offender trainer will answer yes or no.

If the answer is NO, the offender trainer will explain the reason why you should wait until they deem it appropriate to interact with the dog. If the answer is YES, you may interact with the service dog-in-training.

Training

Due to the outgoing social distancing guidelines, class sizes are limited so contact Mary in order to reserve you a seat for upcoming classes. If there’s a need, and the interest there we’ll offer additional training dates as needed. In addition, don’t forget MoLearning and DOCOTA are always available for those needing to get training hours.

 I would like to remind all staff about the meet and greet guidelines for the dogs. If you have  any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact, Mike Miller at ext. 2706. The program does accept donations from staff such as treats, toys and we can always use waste bags. If you are interested in adopting a pup, please contact Mike Miller or contact Shari Baney through Stray Rescue at http://www.strayrescue.org

When  a dog-in-training has a neckerchief around his neck, he is working and should not be approached.

WHEN NO NECKERCHIEF IS ON, YOU MAY ASK THE TRAINER IF IT IS A GOOD TIME TO INTERACT WITH THE DOG.  Based on the dog-in-training actions at that moment, the offender trainer will answer yes or no.

If the answer is NO, the offender trainer will explain the reason why you should wait until they deem it appropriate to interact with the dog. If the answer is YES, you may interact with the service dog-in-training.
