TOWSON, MD (Feb. 9, 2012) – Roger Mueller, Correctional Officer Sergeant, is February’s Employee of the Month for Roxbury Correctional Institution (RCI).

RCI Warden Gregg Hershberger selected Mueller because of the Sergeant’s dedication and professionalism in assisting with the implementation of both the Special Needs Unit and the Rescue Dog Program, a partnership with the Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation that pairs inmates with dogs in need of socialization and training. After they are trained by select inmates, the dogs are socialized well enough to be adopted by loving families. Sgt. Mueller has gone above and beyond in making these programs successful, while continuing to perform his other duties at the highest level. He maintains a well-run unit and has the respect of both staff and inmates.

Sgt. Mueller has been employed with the State of Maryland since 1997.

RCI, located south of Hagerstown on Roxbury Road, is a DPSCS facility that houses approximately 1,700 male offenders. There are approximately 450 personnel positions at the prison.
