The Sheriff of the largest jail in Illinois has released four videos showing his correctional officers being attacked by inmates.
According to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office, the videos involve four examples of inmates assaulting officers since May of 2016, all of which resulted in the aggressors -Frederick Warren, Edward Richmond, Gianati Arguenta and Roy White- receiving charges of Aggravated Battery of a Peace Officer.
There is arguably no job more difficult than that of a correctional deputy,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
“In Cook County Jail, correctional deputies are sometimes subjected to outrageous treatment from inmates, particularly those in the maximum security divisions that house the most violent offenders. Many inmates seek to harass deputies through physical attacks, throwing urine and feces, indecent exposure, verbal threats and more. When inmates engage in this type of behavior, Cook County Sheriff’s Office investigators work diligently with the victimized officers to seek criminal charges against the offending inmates.”
