DOCCS' Lt. Corey Receives Senate Liberty Medal

In July, State Senator Joseph Griffo (Rome, NY) presented Lt. Corey with the Senate Liberty Medal, a commendation awarded to individuals who have demonstrated exceptional, heroic or humanitarian acts and achievements.

Corey, a lieutenant at Marcy Correctional Facility, was on vacation in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in March and helped save a young boy’s life. The boy was stuck in an outdoor pool intake pipe and Lt. Corey aided in freeing him.

Congratulations to Lt. Griffo for this awesome recognition and achievement!
