I am pleased to acknowledge the selection of DEPUTY SHERIFF WILLIAM LUGAILA as Employee of the Month for November 2017. 

Deputy Lugaila was tasked with serving as Acting Sergeant, for an indefinite time period, in the Family Division. Supervisors state Deputy Lugaila shouldered the supervisory role with ease, displaying a willing attitude and ability to quickly learn and fulfill all new responsibilities in both Family and Juvenile Courts. Deputy Lugaila was lauded for maintaining excellent communication with fellow supervisors and for consistently seeking feedback on performance and practices to ensure the most effective operation of personnel and security in the Family Court Complex. In addition, Deputy Lugaila was described as a valuable asset to supervisors in helping to manage the over thirty deputy sheriffs assigned to court processes in the facility. 

While assigned as Acting Sergeant, Deputy Lugaila remained directly involved with the personnel he supervised, eager to assist all deputies in any capacity that he could. Supervisors appreciate the unyielding professionalism he brought to the job, treating all individuals he encountered with the utmost respect. 

For his efforts, Deputy Lugaila will be granted one full day off work, as long as no overtime is incurred. Please join me in congratulating Deputy Lugaila on a job well done.
