Harrison named Officer of Month

Officer Timothy Harrison has been selected as Correctional Officer of the Month at the Reeves County Detention Center I for the month of February.

He is the son of Rhonda Wade of Pecos, a 2000 graduate of Pecos High School and a life-long resident of Pecos.

His hobbies include traveling, reading, and "just hanging out at home."

Harrison was recently selected as a team member on the Disturbance Control Team.

He began his employment with Reeves County Detention Center on June 4, and is also currently attending the Police Academy in Pecos and plans to one day work for the Department of Public Safety or join a Federal Agency, like the Marshal Services.

Harrison has also attended Odessa College and is working on obtaining a degree in Criminal Justice.

"He has worked all pertinent posts and is dedicated to the operation of the Reeves County Detention Center," said RCDC Warden Rudy Franco. "Officer Harrison willingly accepts additional responsibilities and accomplishes all assigned tasks in minimal time with exceptional results," he said.

As a Correctional Officer, his primary responsibility is to maintain security and control of the institution.

"He has continually executed this responsibility in the highest manner and always takes pride in his job as a correctional officer at Reeves County Detention Center," said Franco.

The Reeves County Detention Center is proud to recognize Officer Harrison 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 Officer Harrison, who exhibits such professionalism," he said.

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