Wayne County Honors Correctional Officers & Employees
The Wayne County Commissioners honored the highly trained men and women who staff federal, state and local prisons during Correctional Officers and Employees week, issuing a proclamation Thursday designed to illustrate the critical work they do in a challenging 24-hour environment.
Commissioner Chairman Brian Smith said these trained law enforcement professionals not only keep offenders in line, but model the positive behavior, attitudes and skills that will improve their chances of becoming productive members of society when they are released from custody.
He also acknowledged the sacrifices they are often called on to make and their reputation for professionalism beyond Wayne County.
Commissioner Wendell Kay said he is most proud of the professionalism and respect they not only show to each other, but also to the inmates.
The proclamation urges all residents to “recognize the vital role these dedicated professionals play in ensuring public safety and the safe, secure and humane operation of our correctional facility.”
