DAPO staff then raised money to assist two agents’ families who lost their homes during the devastating fire.
On July 26, Parole Agent (PA) III William Harrison, PA II Specialist Randy Abney, PA I Matt Ledbetter and PA I Justin Benson assisted Shasta County law enforcement will evacuations within the Redding area. The following night, July 27, PA I Jeremy White assisted with evacuations.
All five agents are commended for their heroic actions.
