Correctional Officer Retires After 32 Years of Service

Branchville, Ind. – Branchville Correctional Facility Warden Kathy Alvey congratulated Ofc. Lori Hazelrigg, who will be retiring after 32 years of dedicated service to the Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC).  Ofc. Hazelrigg’s last day of service will be July 7, 2020.

Ofc. Lori Hazelrigg began her career with IDOC in July 1988 as a Custody Officer after three years of service in the United States Army.  After her honorable discharge, Lori began looking for a career that would provide the structure and community service she enjoyed during her military service.  She found that home at the Branchville Correctional Facility.  Throughout her career she has demonstrated her commitment and professionalism through her dedicated work ethic providing an example for fellow custody officers to emulate.

During the span of her career Ofc. Hazelrigg seized opportunities for personal and professional growth and received several letters of appreciation as well as being recognized as Employee of the Month in 1993.

“Officer Lori Hazelrigg has served the Indiana Department of Corrections and Branchville Correctional Facility for 32 years” said Warden Alvey. “She has made this facility a better place. She is very knowledgeable in all areas of the facility and could do any job here.” Alvey continued, “She often presented ideas to the administration and to her Captain’s that were implemented. Lori’s peers looked up to her and respected her. She will certainly be missed and is leaving a lasting legacy at our facility. I wish her nothing but the best in the next chapter of her life.”

After retirement Officer Hazelrigg plans to stay busy with a part time job, working with Veterans Affairs and traveling to visit friends and family; especially with her new grandson.  Best Wishes Officer Hazelrigg, you will be missed!
