Madison County Community Corrections hires fluent Spanish speaker
"The department serves the 25th, 26th and 28th judicial districts, including Madison, Crockett, Fayette, Gibson, Hardeman, Haywood, Lauderdale, McNairy and Tipton counties."
"Director Bob Anderson began his career as clerk with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Then in 1986, the 59-year-old became the director of Community Corrections."
"'It's good when you can help people, see someone get their GED and stay off drugs,' said Anderson. 'Our success is based on a lot of things. Part of it is the case workers, the system, the good Lord and the criminal justice system. It's all a craps shoot.'"
"Certified as a trainer on the topics on domestic violence and hate or bias crimes, Anderson writes grant proposals that keep the program running."
"'What we're doing is trying to promote awareness,' he said."
"Anderson is excited by the training opportunities for his case workers and his department's new hire, a fluent Spanish-speaking employee."
