WVCF Captain Recognized as Silent Hero

Carlisle, Ind. - Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC) facilities were challenged by Commissioner Carter to identify the "Silent Heroes" within their agency.  Commissioner Carter defined Silent Heroes as those individuals who work tirelessly to support the Mission of the agency without complaining, or appearing in the spotlight.

Deputy Warden Frank Littlejohn oversees Operations at Wabash Valley Correctional Facility (WVCF).  As such, he submitted the nomination below for Captain Kuldip Wadhwan.

We would like to nominate Captain Wadhwan, I-Bracket Shift Supervisor, for the Silent Hero Award. Despite several operational challenges to overcome during COVID-19, he has maintained a positive and encouraging attitude with his staff.  He has continually reassured them they will get through this. In addition, he has maintained great communication with Deputy Warden Kevin Gilmore, Major Dusty Russell to keep the facility updated during the daily sergeant meeting. He has truly stepped up as a leader during this crisis, maintaining a calm demeanor for his staff.

Captain Wadhwan stated the following after being presented the award. "I am very thankful for this award. I could not have achieved this without my team, especially my number one Lt. Irvine. I also like to thank Sgt. Shroyer, Lt. Nicholson and other Sergeants for stepping up big time and getting the job done. Thank you LIVE LONG AND PROSPER”
