Correctional Officers Week

 

In 1984 President Ronald Reagan signed proclamation 5187 declaring the first full week in May Correctional Officers Week. We would like to take this opportunity toW-2013-All-Recipients-DSC 0004 express our appreciation and gratitude for the Correctional Officers employed by the Meeker County Sheriff’s Office. As Correctional Officers they are responsible for maintaining a safe and secure environment in our detention facility, correctly processing new detainees to initiate the legal process, and the welfare of our incarcerated population. It is a career choice that often means long hours, little gratitude, and constantly working with people on their worst day. These officers continually meet their challenges with professionalism and courtesy and demonstrate a true dedication to their duty.
