Cherokee commission recognizes correction officers
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.
