Prison Warden Ron Neal is announcing the promotion of Correctional Officer
Ryan Statham to Correctional Sergeant, effective Nov. 5.
Chesterton resident, moved to Indiana from Texas in 2003 and joined the
Department of Correction in September 2014. During the past three years,
Statham became qualified as a Field Training Officer, a Quick Response Team
Instructor, and a member of the Northern Regional SITCON team.
“It is a pleasure
to promote staff like Ryan Statham,” Neal stated. “He has demonstrated his
ability to perform while under duress as he has been a key player responding
to Critical Incidents at ISP. Ryan has shown his ability to be a leader and
I’m sure he will do well in this new role as a supervisor.”
