Mr. Markey retired in 2011 from the Connecticut Department of Correction after 21 years of service. He started out as a Correctional Officer in a Level 4 facility and moved over to working with the District Facility Management and Engineering helping establish policies and procedures along with numerous other duties in helping set up the district area. During most of his tenure with the Department of Correction he acted as an Adjunct Instructor for the Correction Academy and as Technical Advisor in writing new training programs and classes.
Mr. Markey believes that for students today to be prepared for a career after schooling they need someone with first-hand knowledge of the subject matter instructing them. He believes that students learn from doing and asking questions from someone who has done the job before them and can give them real life answers.
