OSA Jaylynn Politte

OSA Jaylynn Politte was selected as Potosi Correctional Center’s Non- Custody Employee of the Month for August 2022. She was nominated by ITO Bryan Martin, who described Jalynn as a perfect example of someone that operates behind the scenes with no recognition. ITO Martin stated “She performs her duties professionally, dependably, and timely. In nearly 2 years, she has not had a single unscheduled absence. She’s never been late. She has volunteered to be a member of the Personnel Club for the last year and a half. Anytime she’s asked to take on additional responsibilities, she jumps in and does so willingly. She acts in the capacity of the Institutional Training Officer anytime the ITO is away, and does so with no complaints.  She consistently works outside of her pay grade and doesn’t ask what she’s getting out of it. She has taken the initiative to become an Adjunct Trainer for First Aid/CRP. She has established a great working relationship with the staff at PCC and regularly goes above and beyond to assist staff with training questions. If she doesn’t know how to do something, she takes initiative to find the answer herself before asking someone for the answer. She spends her own money to ensure our graduating Officers have their badges for their Basic Training Graduations and to ensure our new officers get their first paychecks delivered to them. She has proven herself to be a huge asset to Potosi Correctional Center and the Training Department.” Thank you OSA Jalynn Politte for your hard work and dedication to the PCC team and the Department of Corrections!

Ms. Cox has only been in her current position (IAC) for a short time and she is adapting very well.  She is responsible for printing the Photo-Con photos each week that are taken in Recreation and purchased by offenders.  Ms. Cox has gone above and beyond her printing duty by examining the photos for new tattoos by comparing them to previous photos or to the offender’s existing list of tattoos in OPII.  Through her diligent review of these photos, she has spotted many undocumented tattoos that offenders have received.  She then forwards the information to the Records Office so the tattoos can be added to the offender’s facesheet and back-up card.  Most of the tattoos Ms. Cox catches have evaded conduct violations, so she also alerts housing unit sergeants of recent tattoo activity in their house.  Her extra effort is not only helping make offender tattoo information more up-to-date within DOC, but could also assist law enforcement with a more accurate description for identifying and apprehending an offender in the event of an escape.

William “Bill” Stange was named Warden of Potosi Correctional Center effective September 22, 2019. 

A member of corrections team since 1993, Stange has worked as a Corrections Officer I & II at Renz Correctional Center, Corrections Caseworker I & II at Women’s Eastern Reception, Diagnostic, and Correctional Center, Functional Unite Manager at Northeast Correctional Center, and Assistant Warden.  Most recently Stange worked at Southeast Correctional Center as Deputy Warden.  Stange holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Southeast Missouri State University.

Employee of the Month

Jason Lee  (Custody)

COIII Jason Lee has set an outstanding example of leadership by sacrificing his time and position to fill open slots so further fellow COIs would not be subjected to the Mandatory List.  COIII Lee’s actions in this alone help maintain properly staffed shifts while helping a COI enjoy their time with some rest from the institution.  On one such occasion, Saturday the 25th of May, COIII Lee gave his time for an out count.  During this out count an offender slipped while washing. Lee’s fast reflexes were able to prevent this offender from falling, to which would have been detrimental considering the dynamics of this particular offender’s condition.  Not only Lee’s quick actions, but his experience and cognitive intuition helped prevent a situation before it became life threatening.  His actions give pride to the DOC in knowing that the leadership COII Lee possesses not only exists, but sets high standards to achieve in one’s self.

Racheal Ziegler (Non-custody)

EOM Rachel Ziegler

Racheal (OSA) was selected as Employee of the month at PCC for the month of September.  Since reporting to PCC on January 27, 2019, Racheal has proven her worth.  She came here with no knowledge of how the Training Department operates, it’s computer system and how to complete any of the paperwork.  In 6 months, not only has she mastered all the above, but she has been assigned numerous additional duties outside her duties in the Training Office that she has taken in stride and ran with.

The largest, and most important, additional task she taken on is COI hiring.  Since taking over the hiring of COIs in April of 2019, she has far exceeded expectations.  In less than 4 months, she cleared for hire 40 COIs-that’s only 6 less than we hired in ALL of 2018.  Doing so requires contacting each applicant to schedule an interview and urinalysis test.  Not to mention, verifying applications and other paperwork is complete; running MULES checks, tax compliance checks, MOCIS visiting checks, work history checks, reference checks, SECURUS checks, Selective Service checks, CaseNet checks, and 1-year Exclusion list checks on every applicant-not just the people we’ve hired.  She ensures every file is complete before submitting it to the Personnel Office.  This doesn’t even include the numerous phone calls she handles every day from applicants with questions, or calls she makes to applicants to get necessary paperwork.  All this, while handling her normal duties.  Racheal has never complained about the added duties.  Instead, she continues to quietly complete jobs that are held by 3 different people at other institutions.  She has, undoubtedly, earned the right to represent PCC as Employee of the Month.

Employee of the Month

Custody
CO I Kaitlyn Gettinger

Kaitlyn has been working at PCC for a little over two years.  Kaitlyn stated, “My main focus as a Corrections Officer is the safety and security of my institution. I have always been a part of sports, which means, I’ve always been a part of a team.  PCC continues to give me that feeling of being part of a team, family, and power. There’s always an opportunity to be a leader here. The DOC continues to grow and the health benefits are probably the best that I’ve ever had.  The opportunities are limitless.

Employees of the Month

Custody
CO I Kayla Gilley

Kayla is not only an exemplary employee, she is also an exceptional leader. Her positivity and productivity are contagious among her co-workers.  Additionally, Kayla is a valued member of CERT and a reliable employee, keeping her unscheduled absences at a minimum. Her leadership is appreciated in Housing unit 2 and her professionalism has not gone unnoticed by supervisors on all three shifts. Her willingness to accept responsibility for plans that do not progress as originally hoped is second only to her eagerness to recognize co-workers for completing tasks  well. She is greatly deserving of employee of the month.

Storekeeper I Aaron Estes

Aaron Estes PCC April Non-custody EOM

While the Warehouse Supervisor being out for surgery, Aaron was tasked with covering not only his duties in Offender Clothing Issue, but also the duties of the Warehouse Supervisor. He efficiently and effectively managed to verify the orders were filled correctly, checked each for allowable quantities and items and delivered each throughout the institution in a timely manner.  He loaded and unloaded trucks as needed. He ensured received items were counted and put away correctly.  He did all of this while he was, at times, the only storekeeper on duty, covering the Canteen, Clothing Issue and Warehouse all at the same time. He did this with a smile and never complained. His professionalism and excellent attitude make him the perfect candidate for Employee of the Month.
