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.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Officer Tedder’s wife Marjorie and their two daughters Precious, 13, and Tai, 15. Council 3 encourages every Public Safety local to participate in helping the family of our fallen sister.
