Garcia named Officer of the Month

Officer Joel Garcia has been selected as Correctional Officer of the Month for August at the Reeves County Detention Center I.

Officer Garcia has been living in Pecos all his life and graduated from Pecos High School in May 2000.

His hobbies include playing various sports such as softball and flag football.

Officer Garcia began his employment with the Reeves County Detention Center in July 2000, and was promoted in July 2002, to Correctional Officer III.

He has worked all pertinent posts and is dedicated to the operation of the Reeves County Detention Center.

Garcia willingly accepts additional responsibilities and accomplishes all assigned tasks in minimal time with exceptional results, according to RCDC Warden Rudy Franco.

"Officer Garcia is motivated and takes time to involve himself in other assignments outside of his regular duties," said Franco.

In June 2001, Officer Garcia attended the 9mm Course required for transportation of inmates and is now one of the newest members of the Reeves County Transportation Crew. In June 2002, Garcia was selected as part of the (DCT), Disturbance Control Team for the institution.

As a Correctional Officer, his primary responsibility is to maintain security and control of the institution. "He has continuously executed this responsibility in the highest manner and always takes pride in his job as a correctional officer at the RCDC," said Franco.

The Reeves County Detention Center is proud to recognize Officer Garcia as Correctional Officer of the Month.

"His high standards, quality of work performance, and self-motivation have earned him this honor," said Franco. "It is a pleasure to be associated with an individual such as Garcia who exhibits such professionalism," he said.

"We wish him continued success in his career with the Reeves  County Detention Center," said Franco.
