Greeting to the Motchan Family:
As the Holidays come near your family will always be in the hearts of the NYC Department of Correction.
On Sunday October 26, 2014, the retirees from Kings County Hospital Prison Ward, were reunited for their second annual Breakfast Gathering. This has been organized by two dedicated retired Correction Officers who has worked there. That night, I read the beautiful letter that Correction Officer Konce had written about George Motchan. All of us worked together there as a Team, but we treated eachother like family. It was a nice group of Retired Correction personel, family, and friends.
This has prompted the need to inform the Motchan Family that everyone in Correction has safer career due to George Motchan's sacrafice. It has allowed us, and so many individuals to work safely and retire. Rules and Regulations were implemented, and are followed in strict compliance daily in honor of him.
I retired over 13 years, and worked both as a Correction Officer and Captain, at George Motchan Detention Center on Rikers Island, as well as Kings County Hospital Prison Ward. As a Correction Officer, whenever assigned to a Hospital Run, I followed the Rules and Regulations with pride, and always had a thought of Officer Motchan's sacrafice. His memory is still in the lives of everyone in Correction. Thank you, so much for sharing him with us.
