Victor Linchenko’s swift response demonstrates the importance of staff members relying on their training to resolve a life-threatening situation. A corporal at the time, Victor responded to an incarcerated individual who was choking during a meal at the Reception and Treatment Center. He quickly reacted and delivered aid that dislodged the obstruction.

For his actions, Victor was the recipient of this year’s In the Line of Duty Award. Thank you for your commitment to the NDCS mission: Keep people safe.

Process improvement team members Eric Kasik and Shaun Grantski led the group through the belt training.

It’s true that books have the power to change lives. Thanks to a donation from the Omaha-based Malcolm X Memorial Foundation, 96 copies of “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” will be added to the libraries of NDCS facilities.

Director Scott Frakes and Acting Programs Administrator Philana Blakely welcomed the books on behalf of the department. Spurred by the recent decision to induct Malcolm X into the Nebraska Hall of Fame, the gift of these books gives the population greater access to read about and learn from Malcolm’s life.

Thank you to the Malcolm X Memorial Foundation for your generous donation!
