Commendable Behavior Report for John MacKenzie

State of New York, Department of Correctional Services, Woodbourne Correctional Facility. Commendable Behavior Report for John MacKenzie.

"In my thirty-two years of service for the New York State Department of Correctional Services, I have never felt more compelled to recognize an inmate for commendable behavior. In fact, this is the first time I have ever believed a man deserving enough to be recognized for his demeanor while at work and his comportment while interacting with administrative staff and inmates alike. I also believe it is incumbent upon me to recognize and commend him for his sense of morality, integrity and for his character. I would be remiss in my duties and obligations as an objective representative of society if I did not share my observations.

Furthermore, as a member of the Department of Correctional Services, I am mandated to convey my observations and document the positive effects of anyone so deserving of recognition. It is for these reasons that I submit the following commendable behavior report for inmate John MacKenzie.

In the past three years I have had the opportunity to observe John MacKenzie's interactions with Correction Officers, civilians and administrative staff, as well as the inmate population. At all times, he has conducted himself in a courteous, kind, reliable and honest manner. John has consistently endeavored to perform his duties as Special Subjects Clerk for the Recreation Department and does so with a level of professionalism that is rare among inmates. Aside from his regular duties as office clerk, he has also gone above and beyond his job responsibilities by developing a computerized automated system for the Recreation Department's inventory and purchase records. Furthermore, he is not only dependable, but on many occasions, without expectation of reward, has consistently volunteered to help with additional special projects.

In conclusion, I have found John MacKenzie to be kind, considerate, responsible and genuinely interested in the welfare of others, while maintaining a positive and optimistic outlook on life. Despite his circumstances, he endeavors to improve his life through constructive growth and development."
