PUTNAMVILLE -- Superintendent Stanley Knight and Putnamville Correctional Facility have announced the promotion of correctional officers Jamie Henry and Vincent Helton to correctional sergeants.

"Promoting our officers to leadership positions within the facility not only enhances their job knowledge and strength to supervise, but also makes an impact on our staff," Knight said.

Sgt. Henry started as a correctional officer in September 2012 and has a reputation for being a natural leader. He has worked in several areas around the prison, including receiving and exiting, offender housing dorms and the restrictive housing units.

He enjoys training others and makes his leadership a priority on a daily basis. He currently resides in Terre Haute.

As a member of the emergency response team and team leader on the emergency squad at PCF, Sgt. Helton is known for being there in times of need within the department and surrounding agencies.
