Law Enforcement Appreciation Day

January 9, 2015

Friday, January 9th is Law Enforcement Appreciation Day in the U.S.

The Department of Corrections’ 6,500 uniformed personnel are a vital cog in law enforcement. Our uniformed staff work long hours every day of the year to manage and oversee the thousands of offenders under our custody and supervision. It is difficult and sometimes dangerous work, and I am exceptionally proud of the job being done by our dedicated employees.

ADC has an excellent relationship with our law enforcement colleagues in Arizona and throughout the nation. We collaborate with local, state and federal law enforcement as part of our public safety mission. It’s an important partnership and I’m proud to salute their efforts.

On behalf of the Arizona Department of Corrections, I want to say thank you to all law enforcement personnel for your service.

Director Charles L. Ryan
