Congratulations to DOC criminal justice planner for educational programing Gary Olsen. On Friday, he was awarded theĀ 2017 Veterans Performance Incentive Award (VPIA) for all his hard work connecting veterans, coming through the correctional system, to the reentry employment services that help them be successful in our communities.

Mr. Olsen worked with our DOC staff to help identify veterans upon intake, tracked the information, and used it to notify the Alaska Job Center of veterans who are about to be released.

Mr. Olsen was honored at the annual Veterans and Military Spouses Job Fair on November 18, 2017.
