TOWSON, MD. (August 10, 2011) – Warden Robert Koppel recently announced the Employees of the Month for the Maryland Correctional Adjustment Center (MCAC) for June, 2011. The warden chooses one officer from each shift as well as a non-custody staff member:

Corporal Paul Deya of the 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. shift completes his assigned tasks in a timely fashion without complaint. He is an asset to MCAC, as he is driven to finish any task no matter how big or small. Always punctual and a fast learner, Corporal Deya take his job seriously and enjoys discovering new skills.

Sergeant Joseph Thornton is the lead Sergeant on the 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. shift in the Segregation Unit. On a daily basis he deals with detainee issues while working to ensure the unit runs smoothly. Sergeant Thornton has thirteen years with the Division of Correction (DOC). His outstanding ability and dedication to adapt to almost any situation makes him as asset to the DOC.

Corporal Ernest Brown of the 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. shift functions at a level beyond his grade. Corporal Brown performs his duties with a positive attitude. He is exceptionally punctual and without question is capable of taking the lead in a housing unit.

Michael Carroll, a Correctional Maintenance Officer, is an exceptional worker who will go above and beyond to help. Mr. Carroll has been an asset to the reconditioning of MCAC as its mission shifted to housing federal detainees. He is always on time and prepared for the day’s work. Mr. Carroll puts forth knowledge and creative thinking into any project he approaches.

The Maryland Correctional Adjustment Center opened in 1988. Last year MCAC became part of an official partnership between the Division of Correction and the U.S. Marshals Service. The facility now houses only federal detainees for the Baltimore region.
