AFGE: Safeguarding our communities is a dangerous job 

WASHINGTON – The American Federation of Government Employees Council of Prison Locals President Eric Young released the following statement in response to the death of a correctional worker at James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna, Delaware:  

"We are deeply saddened by the death of a correctional officer in yesterday's hostage situation. We offer our most profound sympathies to the family and friends of our fallen brother, as well as to  the officers at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center.   

Our communities know peace because of the hard work correctional workers perform every day, and the death of a law enforcement officer in the line of duty is an horrific example of how dangerous our work is."
