Md. Public Safety Official Resigns After Prison Attack

Members of the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services say Galley’s resignation, along with the move of two security officials, from NBCI is a good first step to restoring confidence and safety.

CUMBERLAND, Md. - After a spike in attacks on officers at North Branch Correctional Institution, North Region Executive Director, Jon Galley resigned from his position.

Correctional officers along with members of the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services say Galley’s resignation, along with the move of two security officials, from NBCI is a good first step to restoring confidence and safety.

Patrick Morgan, president of AFSCME (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees), said in a recent release, “Many front line officers felt strongly that managers like Jon Galley tied the hands of wardens, not allowing them to run facilities like NBCI like the maximum prisons they are.”

Morgan went on to say he felt Galley’s resignation will begin to restore management’s ability and willingness to protect their safety in the wake of unprecedented assaults against officers.
