Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of correctional officer Shana Tedder, who collapsed after responding to a use of force incident on June 9.
Tedder, of AFSCME Local 3920 at the Crain Unit Women’s Prison in Texas, 41, was a 12-year veteran at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. According to local media and police, Tedder collapsed after responding to a use of force incident. Paramedics at the scene attempted to revive the officer, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
