CO Week Spotlight: Officer Gary Locke

As we continue to celebrate Correctional Officers Week and our outstanding Correctional Officers across the state, today we highlight Correctional Officer Gary Locke who has been with the Department of Corrections at Lemon Creek Correctional Center for almost two and a half years.

During his short time with the department Officer Locke has provided lifesaving efforts and prevented two suicide attempts, one as recent April 22nd of this year.

Officer Locke is silent warrior who does not seek recognition for his hard work or his heroic acts but quietly goes about his duties always seeking an opportunity to help his brother and sister officers.

Officer Locke is a very humble individual who does not like to be the center of attention. The Department of Corrections is very lucky to have Gary Locke as one of their officers.

We appreciate you!
