Mule Creek State Prison Lieutenant Beau Campbell
Lt. Campbell is a 14-year veteran with the Department, and has worked his way through the ranks as a correctional officer, correctional sergeant, and most recently promoting to lieutenant in March 2020, right at the time the world changed when responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the height of the COVID outbreak at Mule Creek State Prison, Lt. Campbell was assigned to the Incident Command Post, which was activated to ensure communications and coordination between custody and health care operations, public health, and community stakeholders. This included tracking cases, housing, testing, and requesting supplies as well as staffing.
As the main custody point of contact, Lt. Campbell diligently worked exhausting hours and helped Mule Creek State Prison’s efforts to ensure a seamless collaboration between custody, medical and support staff.
In addition, Lt. Campbell volunteered to be a mentor for the Correctional Sergeant Mentoring Program and still maintains an active role in that program.
The time he devotes in various leadership and training programs, his good work ethic, and constant positive “can-do” attitude, has earned the respect of his peers and supervisors.
