Correctional officers are the Forgotten cop. They work the unseen community.
God be with his family

Corrections officers stare evil in the eye everyday. RIP to our fallen brother.

My condolences to CO Kountz's family. As Law Enforcement Officers we have the easier job of putting these guys in Prison but the much harder job by far is working day in and day out with these people in prison. We very much appreciate the job that the CO's do for everybody in Law Enforcement.
