Gary Ballard was recently promoted to correctional lieutenant at Plainfield Correctional Facility.
Ballard was hired Nov. 28, 1988, as a correctional officer. He left in 1995 to pursue a position in the private sector. Returning to the Indiana Department of Corrections in 2010 as an officer, he was promoted to sergeant in May 2011.
“He is extremely knowledgeable, level headed and proactive at identifying and resolving problems,” Assistant Superintendent Craig Grage said in a press release. “The Custody Department looks forward to adding his knowledge and experience to the shift supervisor’s office.”
