Tragedies in DOC from Short Staffing Crisis

July 26, 2022

Earlier this month DOC workers, their friends and families had tragedy strike their community several times.

An officer and former officer now with parallel agency were both killed in car crashes following excessive work schedules. Another officer was paralyzed in a crash. Colorado WINS members and staff offer condolences for the losses, and support of the young man who is on the long road to recovery.

Members of the Colorado WINS bargaining team have been at loggerheads with department management trying to establish safer working schedules and the respect the professionals working for DOC deserve. This battle continues. Please look out for each other and take care of each other in these trying times.
