Mancil was selected from more than 300 agency representatives from around the country who attended the conference. She has worked in the Classification & Records Office her entire 29 years with TDCJ, starting as an entry-level clerk in February 1979. She was promoted to supervisor over the Detainer section in 1985 and has also supervised the Emergency Absence and Evening Crew departments since February 2004. In supervising the Detainer section, Mancil is responsible for the extradition of TDCJ offenders to detainers filed by out-of-state agencies. She said she “would be afraid to guess” how many offenders she’s extradited over the years.
Mancil said her selection as this year’s award recipient came as “a total surprise.”
“I feel very honored to have received the award and to join company with the recipients of years past,” she said. “I’ve always enjoyed dealing with law enforcement from throughout the United States. It’s made my job both interesting and fulfilling.”
