RESTON, Va., Dec. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Background: Following is a statement by GTL CEO, Brian Oliver honoring the laudable actions this week of Pulaski County, Indiana Sheriff Jeff Richwine and the 11 deputies who rescued a three-year old child and her five siblings, after receiving a tip from an inmate at the Westville Correctional Facility that the girl was being kept locked inside a box at her home.
"I want to recognize the commendable actions and fine police work of Sheriff Richwine and his deputies this week. By following an inmate tip, they rescued a three-year old girl who was being kept in deplorable conditions that no child or human should ever have to endure. At this time of the year, when we hold our children close, we honor the role that these law enforcement and correctional officers played in making the lives of this little girl and her five siblings safer and brighter.
"This is an example why prison telephone monitoring and recording systems are a vital tool in stopping crimes and preventing them from happening," concluded Mr. Oliver.
