SCI Greene celebrated the recent retirement of Lieutenant Tim Lewis, and Superintendent Robert Gilmore presented him with his 25-year certificate and pin.
Tim began his career on January 24, 1994 as a Corrections Officer Trainee at SCI Coal Township. On October 27, 1994, he transferred to SCI Greene. He promoted to Sergeant on December 17, 2006 and achieved Lieutenant on April 17, 2011.
Throughout his career he held many difficult and demanding positions, such as Scheduling Lieutenant, RHU Lieutenant and ultimately a Security Lieutenant. In his most recent assignment as Security Lieutenant, his steadfast character and integrity enabled him to effectively complete and process hundreds of investigations impartially and without falter. His diligent and professional demeanor has resonated through to staff and inmates alike. While being part of an investigation is never something anyone looks forward too, he conducted the assignment with a high degree of integrity, honesty and absolute professionalism.
He recently established himself as a tremendous asset to the facility, and specifically to the Security Department, during the department's fight against drugs. He relentlessly gathered critical intelligence and worked in conjunction with the Bureau of Investigation and Intelligence, the Intelligence Lieutenant and the Security Captain to identify drug traffickers and hold each accountable to the highest degree possible. These efforts have resulted in a safer place for all staff to work and inmates to live. In addition, Tim's ability to mentor and develop search team members is noteworthy and applauded. He has dedicated himself to provide them with the knowledge and fundamentals to be successful in the Security Office. The work he has done in this regard is indeed one of the most impressive traits of his personal character and proves his commitment to his fellow Officers and to SCI Greene as a whole. His work ethic is a direct reflection of his moral character and his commitment to the PADOC.
SCI Greene congratulates Tim and thanks him for his personal commitment for over two and a half decades of state service!
