To be a correctional officer in any setting is sometimes overlooked and may be overshadowed by more exposed law enforcement agencies. It takes a special person to be a correctional officer, you never know what the day might bring when you enter those gates. My heartfelt condolences to the Rivera family. Rest in peace brother.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Corrections is one of the most difficult jobs in law enforcement. We are under paid and under appreciated but we still do the job. Rest in peace brother.

Lord, when it is time to go inside
that place of steel and stone,
I pray that you will keep me safe,
so I don't have to walk alone.

Help me to do my duty.
Please watch me on my rounds,
amoungst those perilous places
and slamming steel door sounds.

God, keep my fellow Officers
well and free from harm.
Let them know I will be there too
whenever there's an alarm.

Above all when I walk my beat
no matter where I roam,
let me go back whence I came,
to my family and home.

In Jesus Christ Amen

God bless you and may you rest in peace.
