Send a Message Telling Those Involved in “National Correctional Officers Week” How Much They’re Appreciated

Since 1984, the first full week of May has been recognized as National Correctional Officers Week, an important opportunity to acknowledge the courage and heroism it takes to live life as a Correctional Officer.

It takes an unyielding daily commitment to professionalism, integrity, and strength to be successful in the face of a difficult and often dangerous work environment.

Cherokee County Sheriff Jeff Shaver says that during this week, they recognize Correctional Officers across the nation, but most of all, the Correctional Officers at the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, who have a sometimes thankless job, but play a vital role in the criminal justice system.

Monday, the Cherokee County Commission passed a resolution acknowledging the dedicated service of Cherokee County’s detention officers. The Sheriff said “We appreciate the Commission for passing this resolution and recognizing the hard work our professional corrections officers perform around the clock.

Please join us in celebrating National Correctional Officer Week and be sure to express your gratitude for those who serve as a crucial pillar in our public safety systems.
