Mr. Efren Cordova has been selected as Correctional Officer of the Month at RCDC II for November 2001. Mr. Cordova has been employed at the Reeves County Detention Center since February 8, 1999. He is the proud father of one child.

Officer Cordova is a member of the Transportation Crew and has demonstrated and maintained high standards in his work ethics and contributions to the mission of the Reeves County Detention Center. Whenever not assigned to Transportation, and assuming other custodial posts, he is always willing to assist wherever needed.

Officer Cordova's performance during the period covered by this recommendation has been outstanding in all areas. Officer Cordova has been assigned to all pertinent custodial posts, and has performed these duties with outstanding standards of excellence.

Officer Cordova's high standards, quality of work performance, and self-motivation makes him an asset to the Reeves County Detention Center.

I would like to wish Mr. Cordova continued success in his career with the Reeves County Detention Center. It is a pleasure to be associated with an individual such as Efren who displays such professional.
