...
Captain Garvey coordinated the entire effort, but he is quick to say that he really didn't do anything. He gives complete credit to the men.
A steady 4 p.m.-Midnight man, Garvey's tour was changed to a 5 a.m.-1 p.m. tour. He arrived on Rikers lsland each morning at 4:30 a.m. to dispatch the buses organize the runs, and to make certain everyone left on time.
He acted as a liaison between the Board of Education and the Department. At the end of the day, he checked the vehicles in, did the paper work and logging for our records, and finished his day at 7:00 p.m. With pride, he says they had only three mechanical breakdowns, no accidents, -- not even a single "fender bender" in the five week operation.

Experts testify in suicide case 04/22/03

Jim Garvey, who was a three-star chief when he retired in 1994 after 30 years with the New York City Department of Corrections, said he never had seen a jail or prison inmate commit suicide by hanging himself with a blanket or by hanging from a wall switch plate, which was the method Sisk used to kill himself.

...
Garvey called Sisk's cell a protrusion-free cell, which had a custom-made "flush-mounted plate."The cell, which didn't have hooks and had a very high ceiling, was made for suicidal inmates, Garvey said.
Having a corrections officer physically check on the inmate and talk to him is preferable to a video check, Garvey said.But the corrections department's policy on suicide prevention "takes into account everything from A to Z. I find no fault with that at all," he said.
