Tito Martinez has been selected as Correctional Officer of the Month at
the Reeves County Detention Center II for the month of May.
Martinez is a 1991 graduate of Odessa High School. He is married and the
proud father of two little girls.
Officer Martinez began his employment with the Reeves County Detention
Center on July 30, 1998. He was promoted to Correctional Officer III on March
14, 2001 due to his outstanding job performance.
Martinez is a member of the Transportation Crew, he has demonstrated and
maintained high standards in his work ethics, and his dedication to the operation
of the Reeves County Detention Center is outstanding, according to RCDC Warden
"Whenever not assigned to Transportation, he is assigned to custodial
posts, and he is always willing to assist whenever and wherever he is needed,"
said Franco. "He accomplishes all assigned tasks in minimal time with exception
results," he said.
As a Transportation Officer, Martinez' primary responsibility is to maintain
security, safety and control of the inmates while transporting them to other
facilities. By maintaining security, safety and control he is able to prevent
escapes during the transportation process thus insuring the public's safety,
according to Franco.
"Mr. Martinez comes in contact with numerous officials from various other
agencies during these trips and shows to be the epitome of what a Correctional
Officer is at the Reeves County Detention Center," said Franco.

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 Mr. Martinez, who exhibits such professionalism.
We wish him continued success in his career with the Reeves County
Detention Center," he said.
