It is an everyday struggle by my staff to attempt to stem the flow of contraband into our jails. It is very
disheartening when one of your employees is complicit in these crimes. I take this seriously and will continue to take every step necessary to stem the flow of contraband and take whatever steps are required to gain compliance. Bordelon had been employed at A.P.S.O. Corrections for the past 7 months. Bond has not been set.
