May 5th – 11th is National Correctional Officers Week


On May 5th, 1984, President Ronald Reagan signed Proclamation 5187 creating “National Correctional Officers Week”. Since then the first full week in May has been marked to recognize and to honor the work of Correctional Officers and Correctional Personnel Nationwide.

Please take time this week to thank the many men and women who work in jails, prisons, and community corrections.
