National Correctional Officers and Employees Week...
As we acknowledge National Correctional Officers and Employees Week, May 3rd through the 9th, I would like to, once again, express my gratitude and appreciation to this special group of officers and employees.
Corrections officers across the Nation have faced more difficulty in recent months because of the Coronavirus. Some detention facilities in the Nation have many inmate cases of COVID-19 and those correctional officers report to work every shift to operate those jails. Over 20 correctional officers in our Country have selflessly died as a result of contracting the virus inside their facilities.
The corrections officers of the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office are some of the most capable, committed, and compassionate anywhere and consistently excel and perform at the top. They work diligently to encourage detainees to make better choices to hopefully avoid future incarceration.
