It is with a great deal of sadness that we must inform the division of the passing of Correctional Officer Tom Millard last night while on duty at H.W.D.C., circumstance of death will be determined by autopsy. Our condolences to all of Local 248 sisters and brothers and especially to Tom’s family during this time of tragedy.
