This Week is National Correctional Officers Week


In recognition of correctional officers for their professionalism, hard work, dedication and efforts in protecting those in their custody and the public’s safety, May 5–11 has been proclaimed National Correctional Officers’ Week. Because the corrections profession is one of those most challenging and noble professions one can choose to pursue, the week is set aside to recognize the valiant efforts of correctional officers in making their communities a better place.

Other criminal justice agencies and members of the public are encouraged to acknowledge the important and vital role that corrections officers at the Pulaski County Jail play in the protection and services to the citizens of Pulaski County.

For those reasons, Pulaski County Sheriff Michael Gayer has invited the citizens of Pulaski County to share in the thanking of the Pulaski County Correctional Officers, acknowledging their outstanding work on a daily basis as they serve the entire community.
