Today, I was once again privileged to accompany correctional officers, representing our ten state complexes, to the Arizona State Capitol in order to meet Governor Doug Ducey as he proclaimed May 3-9, 2015 to be "Correctional Officers Week."
This commemorative week is an opportunity to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our correctional professionals in communities across the state.
I am proud of our officers, and grateful for the commitment and professionalism that is displayed by them every day.
It is especially an honor to have Arizona’s new governor take the time to meet with our correctional officers and convey his genuine appreciation for the valuable public safety service they provide for the community and state.
So please join me this week in thanking our nearly 7,000 uniformed personnel for their service to this agency and the state of Arizona.
