National Correctional Officers Week
Today marks the culmination of National Correctional Officers Week and we want to extend our gratitude to all Custody Assistants for their service and dedication.

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued Proclamation 5187, creating National Correctional Officers Week to acknowledge personnel who work in jails, prisons and custody facilities across the country.

Please join us in honoring the many contributions and accomplishments of hard-working Custody Assistants throughout the County. We salute you!
