NDCS Team Member Spotlight: Michael Edison

NDCS Team Member Spotlight: Michael Edison


Personnel Manager Michael Edison works alongside another team member at the Nebraska State Penitentiary (NSP).

Edison has been with the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services (NDCS) since 1998, when he started as an officer. Since then, he has promoted to corporal, became the disciplinary committee coordinator for NSP, and promoted to unit manager before accepting his current role as personnel manager. 

Edison said he knew from the start that working for NDCS would be a career for him, as visions of being a warden someday danced in his head. He has not given up on that long ago dream, but states he is very happy in Human Resources. 

His advice for others is to “be prepared to be challenged in ways that test your fortitude, as working in corrections is a tough job.”
