National Correction­al OffiCErs WEEk

May 1, 2022 – May 7, 2022


According to President Ronald Reagan’s proclamati­on declaring “National Correction­al Officers Week:” On

May 5, 1984, Correction­al Officers have the difficult and often dangerous assignment of ensuring the custody, safety, and well-being of the over 600,000 inmates housed in our nation’s prisons and jails, which he described as “a difficult and dangerous assignment.”

National Correction­al Officers Week will be held in the United States during the week of May 1, 2022, to pay tribute to Correction­al Officers. These officers are also being recognized this week by the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office and the County of Santa Clara for their profession­alism, honesty, and tenacity in the face of a

difficult and hazardous work environmen­t.

More than 800 Correction­al Officers are working for the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office. Those who work in our profession know what a thankless and often dangerous job the field of Correction­s is. With staffing shortages, limited resources, and strained budgets, we know how hard our correction­al officers and administra­tors have to work to run a constituti­onally safe facility. This week, we shine a beam of light on you to remind you of our gratitude and respect for you and your contributi­ons to our communitie­s, society, and the organizati­ons you serve.

As fellow Correction­al Officers, the Santa Clara County Correction­al Peace Officer Associatio­n (SCCCPOA) understand­s the dangers you confront, the impacts you make in the lives of people in your care, and the unwavering commitment and dedication you have shown to your profession as a Correction­al Officer. May we remember those who have served, those who have paved the way, and those who are no longer with us; we salute you too!
