Florida Department of Corrections Honors Fallen Officers And Staff

May 15, 2018

Monday, the Florida Department of Corrections honored fallen correctional officers and employees during an annual wreath laying ceremony  at Wakulla Correctional Institution.

On this solemn day, we take time to remember and honor the members of our Department who have fallen while protecting Florida’s communities. This year, we honor Sergeant Thomas Crosby. It is never easy to add a name to this wall, but here our fallen officers are memorialized eternally. We are forever grateful for their service,” FDOC Secretary Julie Jones said.

The name of Sergeant Thomas Crosby, Florida State Prison, will be added to the memoria. He had more than 13 years of service with the department when he passed away on duty from natural causes.
