✨ SPOTLIGHT SATURDAY ✨ Corrections Security Program Coordinator Chris SelukSome inmates at the Lee County jail are considered high-need, high-utilization. “Those are inmates who use a lot of resources,” said LCSO Security Program Coordinator Chris Seluk. “It may be because they require frequent hospital visits, are elderly, or are suffering from mental illnesses like schizophrenia. My goal is to help them.”Seluk, who began her LCSO career as a corrections clerk in 2005 and later became an evidence technician, has always been drawn to social work. After earning a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from Florida Gulf Coast University, Seluk worked in Corrections while pursuing a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Hodges University. “Right now we have 13 inmates in custody who fit the definition of high-need, high-utilization,” she said. “At some point they will be released and part of what I do is monitor them as best we can to remind them of upcoming court dates, appointments, and other requirements. I also liaise with outside agencies and work with local programs to get these people the help they need.”Of course, not all are accepting of such assistance. “It can be frustrating at times, but ultimately I’m trying to reunite families and connect them to resources so hopefully they don’t come back to jail,” Seluk said. “The most important part of my job is building relationships within the community.”While there have been numerous success stories since being appointed to her current position in 2019, Seluk recalls the one case that stands out. “It was a 37-year-old man with the mentality of a 5-year-old,” she explained. “He was a big guy – over six feet tall – but he was child-like in terms of his psychological and emotional development."Deputies were patient and kind with the man, she said, but even his public defender was against letting him out of jail. Finally, the man was brought before a judge. A few hours later, Seluk received info that he was released into his mother's custody. Dealing with older inmates who have dementia, or those with mental illnesses and medical conditions, may seem taxing, but Seluk maintains a faith-inspired positive attitude about the work she does. ...
