National Correctional Officers Week
May 7 - 12, 2018
This week we honor you and all those who work alongside you "in the trenches." Never in the history of the United States has corrections been so negatively scrutinized and in the public eye. Corrections officers, administrators and staff are targeted routinely, often unjustifiably, and are blamed for events out of their control.
The correctional world is all about DEFENSE. A good day means nothing happens--no incidents, no mishaps, etc. Those who work in our profession recognize what a difficult task that is, especially on limited staffing, resources and budgets. It is often a thankless job... usually only recognized or noticed when something goes wrong...so today and EVERY day, the National Institute for Jail Operations stands with you as you work to run constitutionally safe facilities across the good old U.S.A.
