Correction Officer Day 2017

The New Jersey Department of Corrections (NJDOC) held a memorial ceremony for Officer Fred Baker at Bayside State Prison this past Sunday, July 30, 7:55 a.m., the exact time Officer Baker was stabbed to death by an inmate in 1997.

Following the memorial service, the NJDOC held Correction Officer Day and Departmental Service Awards ceremonies at Central Office headquarters. The NJDOC added the name of Senior Correction Officer Nikeelan “Nick” Dewann Semmon to the Fallen Officers Memorial. Officer Semmon died in the line of duty at Albert C. Wagner Youth Correctional Facility on July 1, 2016, at age 36. The department also presented awards to members of the custody staff for their outstanding accomplishments.
