Cherokee County Herald - - FRONT PAGE - By Terry Dean CCH Ed­i­tor

The Chero­kee County Com­mis­sion has adopted a res­o­lu­tion declar­ing May 7-13 as Chero­kee County Cor­rec­tional Of­fi­cers Week.

The res­o­lu­tion notes how the Chero­kee County Com­mis­sion is priv­i­leged to have a group of men and women who are trained pro­fes­sion­als and who serve on a daily ba­sis in the county’s cor­rec­tional fa­cil­ity which houses the most anti-so­cial and dan­ger­ous in­di­vid­u­als so­ci­ety has to of­fer.

Chero­kee County De­ten­tion Cen­ter Chief of Corrections Har­ley Lamey and his corrections of­fi­cers joined the com­mis­sion for the spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion dur­ing the Mon­day, April 24, meet­ing of the County Com­mis­sion.

“These pro­fes­sion­als serve valiantly to pro­vide hu­mane con­di­tions of con­fine­ment while en­sur­ing se­cu­rity,” states the res­o­lu­tion.

“The daily man­age­ment of of­fend­ers re­quires spe­cial train­ing, sound judg­ment and courage,” the res­o­lu­tion reads.

These cor­rec­tional of­fi­cers and cor­rec­tional of­fi­cer su­per­vi­sors, as stated in the res­o­lu­tion, pro­vide es­sen­tial ser­vices and ex­em­plify the high­est pro­fes­sional stan­dards by their com­mit­ment to the Chero­kee County Sher­iff’s Of­fice mis­sion of pro­tect­ing the pub­lic, the em­ploy­ees and of­fend­ers.
