CO Week Spotlight: Officer Jeremy Sandy

As we continue to celebrate Correctional Officers Week and our outstanding Correctional Officers across the state, today we highlight Officer Jeremy Sandy who works at Spring Creek Correctional Center and was the Employee of the Year for 2016.

Officer Sandy joined the Spring Creek team in March of 2013 and has become a vital team member. He demonstrates through his job performance and integrity a work ethic that is admired by all.

He is an exceptionally competent officer and a pleasure to work with. He has a positive and “can do” attitude and is well liked and supported by his team in the Restricted Housing Unit. It takes a good communicator and a skilled officer to work with this population and he does it well.

Officer Sandy is a role model for others and new staff who are still under training in look to him for advice and the working knowledge to succeed. Even as a fairly junior officer he has completed the Range Officer course, is on the Spring Creek SORT Team and strives to better himself on a daily basis.

Officer Sandy is usually one of the first to respond in an incident and handles each situation with consummate professionalism as well as an outstanding attitude. His dedication and professionalism is appreciated.

He is an excellent ambassador for Spring Creek Correctional Center.

We appreciate you Officer Sandy!
