Mass. C.O. Killed During Perimeter Check

July 25, 2012  | 

A Middlesex County (Mass.) Sheriff's corrections officer was killed early Wednesday in a vehicle crash while performing a perimeter check at the sheriff's facilities.

Correction Officer Edward "Teddy" Dillon III, 27, of Lowell, was working the midnight to 8 a.m. shift at the Middlesex House of Correction, according to the sheriff's office.

The accident occurred on Treble Cove Road at about 4:10 a.m. Officer Dillon had served the sheriff's office since 2008.

"My thoughts and prayers, as well as those of the entire Middlesex Sheriff's Office, go out to Officer Dillon's family, friends, and colleagues," said Sheriff Peter Koutoujian in a statement. "We know the work of correction officers is difficult and dangerous, but that does nothing to ease the pain and shock when we lose one of our own."

The Massachusetts State Police's Collision Analysis and Reconstruction section is investigating the incident.

They should put the prison on lock down for a week in honor of this C.O. If it wasn't for these maggots in the prison terrorizing society then this officer would of never had to do a perimeter check. The prison should take all the money that would be spent on medical and dental care for the inmates and pay for a big funeral.
