|By Jim Montalto, News Editor|
Indiana Department of Correction Commissioner Edwin G. Buss selected Michael Osburn to be the agency’s deputy commissioner of operations, and Bruce Lemmon to be Putnamville Correctional Facility’s new superintendent.
Mr. Osburn began his career in 1986, as a correctional officer at Plainfield Correctional Facility. He became the facility’s correctional major, and then served as Miami Correctional Facility assistant superintendent. He also was the superintendent for Putnamville Correctional Facility.
Osburn has served thirty-three years with the U.S. Army National Guard, and currently is deputy commander and colonel for the 81st Troop Command. He received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from Oakland City University, and a Master of Strategic Studies degree from the United States Army War College.
“Mike has been a great asset to the department at the facility level, and I am confident he will make the most of his vast correctional experience as deputy commissioner. I am excited that he will be joining my executive team,” Buss said.
Lemmon began his INDOC career in 1976, and has held numerous positions since. He has been director of the Indianapolis Men’s Work Release facility, regional director of adult facilities, deputy commissioner of administration, and most recently, deputy commissioner of re-entry.
“Bruce has served the department well in a number of capacities, and he will be very well-prepared to assume his new role as superintendent. I look forward to working with him in his new capacity,” said Buss.
Lemmon received his Bachelor of Science degree from Indiana State University.
