National Corrections Officer Week

We celebrate National Correctional Officers Week in the first week of May — from May 7 to 13 this year.

Former President Ronald Reagan established this week on May 5, 1984. He saw the need to create a week for correctional officers to thank them for their services and celebrate their contributions to society.

During this week, we recognize correctional officers who exemplify professionalism, integrity and strength in the face of a difficult and often dangerous work environment.  We want to take this opportunity to thank each and every staff member that works at the Washington County Jail currently or has worked at the jail in the past.  Thank you to all for your dedication and service each and every day.  You are very much appreciated and deserving of recognition for the job that you do.
