PENDLETON — “It’s not our job to torture them, they are here without their families, that’s their torture,” Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution correctional officer Geoff Holden said on building relationships with adults in custody. “I try to build rapport with everyone, this can be a pretty sad place, and I try to get people to smile.”

Holden has been an employee at EOCI for the last six-and-a-half-years and won recognition from EOCI and the Oregon Department of Corrections as the correctional officer of the year for 2022.
