The Idaho Department of Correction has honored two Idaho State Correctional Center staff members, two Corizon staff members, and one IMSI staff member for saving the life of an inmate who attempted suicide. 

At the Idaho Board of Correction’s meeting on June 11, 2018, IMSI Cpl. William Ibanez, ISCC Sgt. Dustin Trumbull, and former ISCC C/O Cade Terry were presented with IDOC’s Silver Cross.

The Corizon staff members, James Monti and Anthony Young were unable to attend the meeting and will receive their Silver Cross medals and certificates later.  

On Nov. 28, 2016, the five men, along with help from other staff members, saved the life of an inmate who was bleeding after cutting himself. 

“Had it not been for the quick actions of these staff members, the offender would have lost his life due to the seriousness of his wounds, and the amount of blood lost,” Warden Jay Christensen said during the presentation. 

The Silver Cross is presented to staff for displaying prompt or alert action resulting in a life being saved or the prevention of serious injury to others and for demonstrating exceptional care for other individuals.
