The word ‘family’ is the first thing that comes to mind when License Practical Nurse (LPN) Brenda Haith thinks about her time at the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services (NDCS). “Mental Health Unit Caseworker Gigi Paul, medical records teammates Wendy Karas and also Katie Whiting are all my right-hand women. With mental health, security and unit staff all working together daily to make everything run smoothly, we have to have a very open line of communication between all areas so that we can be a cohesive unit.”

During the month of May, NDCS celebrated Correctional Officers and Teammates Month. While most activities had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 restrictions, facilities made smaller gestures to recognize teammates in the meantime. The Employee Activities Committee at the Diagnostic and Evaluation Center handed out bags of candy with a note attached to a bottle of water. They also offered free items off the snack cart and handed out ice cream bars and popsicles throughout the month. They still hope to celebrate with a barbeque at a later time. #EmployeeAppreciation #ThankYouRead more

AT NDCS, we are always looking for ways to recognize those teammates who go the extra mile. Corporal Marissa Dierking is one of those employees. She was recently presented with a Challenge Coin for her excellent skills in video surveillance and report writing in connection with an assignment at NSP. Both tasks are very detail-oriented and time consuming. The fact that Cpl. Dierking was willing to work on a day off in order to ensure all paperwork was turned in on time, speaks volumes about her work ethic.

NDCS is proud to acknowledge the hard work of Cpl. Dieking during May – NDCS Correctional Workers and Teammates...Read more
