As a Former New York City Correction Officer and present publisher of
with great pride that I say the New York City Correction Officers are
the Best in the world.
During my 25 Year Tour of Duty, I Ralph E. Smith enjoyed working with New York's Boldest and always resolved any serious matters with co-workers in a postiive respectful manner because that's what Correction Officers Do!
I am very sorry for any negative false statesments or rumors
about a Correction Officer I called my Sister!
She and her Family are real positive good people!
I was taught by Senior Correction Officers who were Guardians for Real! I'm talking about Real men who put on the Blue Uniform at AMKC and OBCC to
respect each other at all times on and off the job because at the end of the tour;
or sometimes even life. we only have each other!!
C.O. Rule #1
Always start and end your Tour with Trust, and Honor for Each Other, Staff and Inmates! Agree to be Disagreeable but respectful!
Never think you are better than the inmate you Supervise. Remember that inmates saved a Female Correction Officer recently from being raped! Be Fair, firm, and steady. You never know when that same inmate you took the time to say Good Morning to will save your life behind the bars or on the street!
As Retired VCBC Captain Martinez would say at each Roll Call;
Have a good
Tour and Maintain!
I, Ralph E. Smith Retired 25 Year Veteran spent more time with my Brother and Sister Correction Officers and inmates behind the bars than I did with my 1st Family. I will love and miss so many NYC Correction Officers who became my 2nd family of all color and races.
I will always respect every Correction Officer I met!

A group of inmates rescued a female correction officer who was nearly raped by a hulking prisoner inside a locked vestibule on Rikers Island Saturday night, The Daily News has learned.
The inmates helped responding correction officers frantically tear away Plexiglas on the outside of the bubble-like watch post inside the Anna M. Kross Center at 8:15 p.m., according to multiple sources.
A skinny inmate slipped inside the so-called “A station” bubble through the small crack and opened the security door. A team of inmates then took down the assailant, Raleek Young, 27, until other officers arrived.
During the attack, Young, who is 5-foot-9 and weighs 290 pounds, pulled down his pants and began masturbating while choking the officer, court records show.
He dragged the officer into an adjacent bathroom and blocked her from opening the security door.
“The matter is under investigation,” said Correction Department spokeswoman Eve Kessler.
The majority of the attack was caught on video, a source who watched the tape said.
Young was able to get inside the bubble area after he claimed he needed to pick up a mattress in another unit and had to pass through the watch post.
He's serving a five-to-10-year sentence for raping a 13-year-old girl in 2007, court records show.
Initially, jail brass labeled the attack a routine “use of force” incident, records show.
That infuriated officers at the facility, who demanded it be labeled a sexual assault.
On Sunday, officers at the facility refused to go to their posts at the start of the 3 p.m. shift, sources said.
Correction Officers Benevolent Association President Norman Seabrook came to the jail and persuaded his members to go back to work after he promised to take up their cause, sources said.
The union president is furious Young wasn’t instantly rearrested and hit with added charges. He claims staff at the Bronx district attorney’s office insisted the matter would be handled after the weekend was over.
“There must be accountability,” Seabrook fumed Monday. “Officers are assaulted every day, and (Bronx DA Robert Johnson) has the audacity to say, ‘Not today, bring him back at another time.’ I will not tolerate it. I will not stand for it.”
Young was arraigned Monday in Bronx Criminal Court. He is facing a slew of new charges, including: attempted rape, sexual abuse, forcible touching, and assault and harassment.
The criminal complaint says Young ripped off the correction officer’s sweater and “placed his lips on her mouth and about her face.”
She was treated at a hospital after the attack.
The situation could have been a lot worse if it was not for the inmates’ assistance, Seabrook admitted.
“I appreciate (them) helping a sister officer because that could have been their mother, wife or sister,” Seabrook said, noting 90% of the inmates “are there to do their time and go home.”

Express our since condolences to the family of
NYPD Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos
The National Latino Officers Association’s
Members and supporters extend our deepest condolences to the families of Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos.
This despicable act of violence on two of New York’s finest is unacceptable and the continued act of physical aggression towards Police Officers has no place in this City or any American city or town.
The City of New York loss two great men tonight and they join the company of too many other Police Officers that have given the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Members please remain vigilant on and off duty, remembering that you’re safety and that of the public is paramount.
