Governor Barbour Designates May 1st-7th
Correctional Officers Recognition Week

Jackson - Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC) Commissioner Christopher B. Epps today expressed his gratitude to Governor Haley Barbour for designating May 1 – 7 as Correctional Officers Week in Mississippi. During the week, MDOC will join with other correctional agencies nationally to honor workers who were killed in the line of duty and also to salute gallant correctional employees who daily place their lives on the line in order to make society a safer place for all to live.

Governor Barbour officially proclaimed May 1 – 7, 2005 as Correctional Officers Recognition Week. The proclamation reads in part, “WHEREAS, the employees of the MDOC are an integral part of the criminal justice framework and coordinate with other state and local law enforcement professionals, constantly striving to provide a correctional system which exceeds all recognized standards.”

“I think it’s important to recognize the daily challenge that these dedicated men and women face in their commitment to serve the people of Mississippi,” said Governor Barbour. “I urge the citizens of our great state to join me in commending these law enforcement professionals.”

“This week is especially important to us because it allows us to pay tribute to those throughout our agency whose jobs exist to protect society,” said Commissioner Epps. “Too often we assume that when a criminal is caught and sentenced they are no longer a threat to our community or to our safety. The reality is that the men and women of corrections are confronted each day by the most dangerous individuals among us.”
