Cheyenne – The Wyoming Department of Corrections Central Office has selected Lt. Robert Smith as the Outstanding Employee of the second quarter of 2012-13. He was nominated by his peers and selected based on his continued exemplary performance.
Smith is a training lieutenant with the Wyoming Department of Corrections Training Academy in Rawlins. He has been with the WDOC for seven years.
“Smith is a strong leader who has taken it upon himself to help the department become a better place to train and work,” said Jeffie Wiggins, WDOC Central Services Administrator. “Those same efforts have led to national recognition and we are fortunate to have Smith as a peer and leader in our organization.”
Smith took the lead to develop and implement a new department Field Training Officer (FTO) program. He put countless hours into researching best practices from across the nation. Smith then crafted a program that melded the best of what he saw and learned.
Since the implementation of the program, he continues to liaison between the WDOC academy, training coordinators and vendors who provide services for the program. His efforts have led to his election by his peers to the board of governors for the National Association of Field Training Officers.
In addition to taking on these added responsibilities, Smith continues to be a valuable asset as a training instructor for the WDOC training academy in Rawlins, where he models what the WDOC teaches about treating others with respect.
