Austin A. Hunter, Detention Officer - WY

"Deputy Hunter tirelessly works on every one of the ICJ runaway returns up in Gillette, WY. He ensures that all parties involved are kept informed on the status of the juvenile's return regarding the Form III process; occasionally multiple juveniles at one time. He has on more than one occasion taken time out his busy shift to personally ensure that the juvenile is properly cared for and also kept informed of their return. There is not just one instance I can mention that makes him valuable but a multitude of occasions he has went above and beyond for ICJ. He makes the return process seamless for ICJ staff and is an absolute asset for his area as well as the State of Wyoming. For his efforts and dedication to the ICJ Mission, I am nominating him for ICJ Staff Recognition honors."
