Episode No. 102: Sing Sing Prison

Date: March 18, 2010

Notes: A conversation with retired Corrections Officer Al Bermudez Pereira about Sing Sing Prison.

Al Bermudez Pereira, a Florida resident, is a retired New York State Correction Officer and Hispanic American writer. He is known for writing his first book, “Sing Sing State Prison, One Day, One Lifetime,” featured in the Ossining Historical Society Museum and reviews from City of Lakes Lifestyle Magazine and other Central Florida publications.

His new book, "Ruins of a Society and the Honorable" published in 2009, was recently nominated for Best 2009 Autobiography by The Multicultural Literature Advocacy Group, Living in Color Literary Awards.  It has also recently received notability by US Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor for her honorable mention in the book.

Bermudez was born in Brooklyn, NY. His career service training included; NYS Municipal Police Training Council Division of Criminal Justice, NYS Department of Corrections, NYC Police Department Auxiliary Forces 62nd Pct., NYS Corrections Emergency Response Team, NYS Westchester County Fire Training Center, NYS Commission of Correction Suicide Prevention and Intervention, Seminole County Sheriff's Office Community Law Enforcement Academy and Lake Technical Center Institute Of Public Safety.

Al Bermudez Pereira is the first Latino Correction Officer in Sing Sing's 184 year history, ever to write a book about the facility. Upon completion of his Spanish version of Ruins of a Society and the Honorable, we believe he will be the first Latino in the US who have authored a book in Spanish, which address a NYS prison in the US. Al Bermudez Pereira is a member of the Latino Officers Association of Florida, Florida Freelance Writers Association, The National Society for Hispanic Professionals and Florida Writers Association.
