The entire CCA family is saddened and distraught over the guilty verdict in Terrence Pendergast's Federal trial. We will continue to support Terrence and his family during this difficult time. The CCA will be announcing 10-13's to help raise funds to pay for an appeal. Please be generous when asked to contribute.
CCA SUPPORTS AND ASKS OUR CAPTAINS TO PARTICIPATE IN COMPLETING THE DEPARTMENT-WIDE SURVEY
The department is well aware that there are major issues we face on a daily basis. In an effort to address these problems, the department contracted McKinsey & Company, an organization that has worked with many large companies, both private and public, to improve their overall performance. McKinsey has interviewed staff members of all ranks in developing their recommendations for the department. A major component of their work for the department is the development of a survey for staff to give their personal views on the work they do and general opinions of various topics critical to getting our job done. The survey, which is voluntary and anonymous, has been endorsed by the CCA. It can only improve the work environment we toil in by providing honest and candid information. The “Leadership and Culture Assessment Survey” is a culmination of the work done so far by McKinsey.
On February 4, 2014, the department began to distribute the survey to all members of the department to gather data, to be analyzed by McKinsey, which hopefully will provide the department with sufficient information to help direct management in how to begin addressing all of the difficulties we face today. It will be a long and arduous task, but we need to start somewhere. The department has expressed to the CCA their total commitment to the men and women who work for the DOC and to do whatever it takes to improve our working environment and provide for our safety and security. The Commissioner has stated that he is working to increase staffing to provide better security and supervision to the inmate population. The CCA is encouraged by Commissioner Ponte’s commitment to this and will maintain an on-going dialogue with the DOC to ensure this is accomplished. The CCA will make certain that the rights of our Captains are not infringed upon and that the issues we have brought to the table are addressed.
