Challenge Coin Presented to Kerry Clark

Our Victim Notification Coordinator, Kerry Clark, was presented with a Challenge Coin on July 10, 2019 by Solomon Graves, Chief of Staff for the Arkansas Department of Corrections. Mr. Clark’s efforts have yielded a reduction in the return rate for Victim Notification Letters from 20% to 8.5%! This is saving the Division of Correction thousands of dollars in mailing costs and ensuring that more victims receive the notifications they are due. Great work, Mr. Clark!
