But more than a half dozen other NYC uniformed Correction staffers with rank titles other than that of Correction Officer have died as the consequence of inmate violence since NYC became a five-borough municipality in 1898.
Perhaps because most of their stories go back three quarters of a century or more, they are less well known to current Correction personnel. This presentation seeks to create greater awareness and appreciation of their sacrifices.
To that purpose, a "digital plaque" memorializing them, along with C.O. Motchan, has been created. The above JPG version (4.8 by 6 inch, 54 Kb, 72 dpi) of the "digital plaque" has been mapped so that, by clicking on a name entry, the related details can been accessed.
For color printing on letter size paper that can be attached to a notice board or framed for display, an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) also has been created -- 7.5 by 9.36 inches, 661 Kb, and 200 dpi resolution.

If you have missed the most recent web presentation on this site about Correction Officer George Motchan -- concerning the rededication at the George Motchan Detention Center auditorium of his memorial plaque from the Kings County Hospital Prison Ward (now closed) -- click the Motchan thumbnail icon left.
