Corrections officer arrested

A Delaware Department of Corrections officer is on the wrong side of the bars today after being arrested for taking prohibited items into the Delaware Correctional Center yesterday.

Delaware State Police say 46-year-old, Rawle A. London was arrested yesterday after it was discovered that he had money, drugs and a cell phone in his possession. All are items prohibited at the corrections facility in Smyrna .


Police say another observed the cell phone and reported London, who has worked for the Department of Corrections for 3 years, to a superior officer. That officer investigated further and discovered London was also carrying $345, which is also a policy violation, 26 grams of what is suspected to be marijuana and about 1.5 grams of cocaine.


Delaware State Police responded and continued the investigation. Their investigation revealed that London planned to distribute the items in his possession inside the prison.

London, who lives in Dover, is charged with Possession with the Intent to Deliver Marijuana, Possession with the Intent to Deliver Cocaine and Promoting Prison Contraband. He was arraigned and released after posting $15,500.00 secured bail.


London is on paid leave pending further administrative action. Police say no other Department of Correction (DOC) employees were involved.

  1. It’s dirt bags like that that make our job dangerous

  2. In a nation wherein “In GOD We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, corruption and wickedness exist on both sides of the badge and the bars. Yet, are they bad men just because they made some bad choices? Do not all of us have A’s and F’s on our moral report cards? As I so stated on my blog, we can’t fix it IF we can’t face it. I dare anyone who wants to fix their F’s to read that textbook in sex education and then to trust in GOD…and that’s my final answer!
