Howard Robertson retired from the New York City Department of Correction after serving 22+ years. During the course of his entire career he had care, custody, and control over some of New York's most notorious drug kingpins, murderers, and gang members. In the last three years of his career, Mr. Robertson served as a Warden on Rikers Island. Specializing in rehabilitation, Mr. Robertson received the prestigious Commissioner's award for implementing a number of programs that significantly reduced the violence at the Adolescent Detention Jail on Rikers Island.
