This team works in close proximity with long term isolation Offenders to help rehabilitate them for release to the community. I was also awarded with an Outstanding Service Award in 2020 for being one of four people who participated in the start up of the Pre-Release Program. In this program, isolated Adults in Custody (AIC's) work in a class room setting, where we teach them how to fill out resumes and interview for jobs, as well as how to interact while facing conflict during everyday life in the community. In 2023, I am currently enrolled in DOC's Leadership Development Program.
