In Part 42 of West Yard under the title “IERT Team Leader Suspension” I mention the badges that I had made for my Team Members. Pictured below is one of those badges within a wallet and the business cards that I had printed for the Team all at my own expense. At that time the CSC would never support or even entertain a proposal for this kind of recognition, so I did it. To them the IERT was the pointed end of the stick that was only used as a last resort when there was blood on the floors. We were not formally recognized for the volunteer work that we did to protect the inmates and the staff members.
