The extreme challenges and often unforeseen circumstances associated with this profession leave Officer Fisher undaunted. His impeccable work ethic and dedication to the unit and his fellow officers make him a natural mentor for newly-assigned officers. Officer Fisher rises above and epitomizes the ideal in correctional staff, displaying unwavering honesty and fairness to both co-workers and the offender population. He continues to lead by example, representing the vast number of men and women tasked daily with upholding the mission of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
