Employee Spotlight: Placido Ramirez, Allred Unit

Whether it’s on the job at the Allred Unit or working with young people in the greater Wichita Falls area, Lieutenant Placido Ramirez goes out of his way to make a difference in people’s lives.

Lieutenant Ramirez began working for the agency in October 2005 and has worked his way through the security rankings, eventually promoting to lieutenant in December 2021. Through his almost 17 years of service, Lieutenant Ramirez has had the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with his co-workers and make a positive impact on new correctional officers.

When he’s not at the facility or spending time with his family, Lieutenant Ramirez works as a mentor for the Wichita Falls Independent School District where he helps with underprivileged and special needs students. In 2015, he received the Mentor of the Year award by Wichita Falls ISD for his commitment.

Join us in congratulating Lieutenant Ramirez for everything he does both on and off the unit for his community and team members.
