WASHINGTON, D.C. – Representative Jody Hice (R-GA) spoke on the House floor this week to honor the lives of Sergeants Curtis Billue and Christopher Monica of the Georgia Department of Corrections, who were killed by two escaped inmates on June 13, 2017 in Putnam County, Georgia. Hice’s speech can be viewed online here.

Mr. Speaker, I rise in honor of two Georgia State Corrections Officers, Sergeants Curtis Billue and Christopher Monica, who were killed in the line of duty June 13th in Putnam County, Georgia. I share with their families the deep sorrow perpetrated by the violence of two rogue inmates, and I pray that God comforts the Billue and Monica families in their time of grief.

“Described as hardworking, kind, and devoted, Sergeants Billue and Monica will be remembered for their service and sacrifice, for their loyalty as public servants, and for their love and dedication to their families.

“I'm grateful that the two perpetrators of this crime have been brought back into custody, and I am confident that justice will be served. American law enforcement officers make a promise to keep our country and communities safe, and in return, we must restore the tradition of respect and honor that is owed to all members of the law enforcement community who are on the frontlines.

“In gratitude to Sergeants Billue and Monica, Governor Nathan Deal ordered the flags of Georgia to fly at half-staff on July 17th and 20th. I ask my colleagues to join me in recognizing their lives and service and to say thank you to every brother and sister in uniform who stand on that thin blue line. And I yield back.”

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
