2023 Correctional Officer Appreciation

2023 Correctional Officer Appreciation
            May 7-13, 2023, is National Correctional Officers Week also referred to as Correctional Workers Week. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 393,000 correctional officers and jailers worked inside correctional facilities in the United States in 2021.[1] The total number of correctional workers is likely much higher as facilities may also employ chaplains, healthcare providers, teachers, food service workers, and maintenance personnel. Correctional workers face a variety of workplace hazards and challenges including violence and physical assaults; strains, slips, trips, falls, or other injuries when responding to emergencies; motor vehicle-related injuries; sharps injuries; exposure to infectious diseases (e.g., HIV, hepatitis, TB); exposure to illicit drugs; and risks for work-related stress, depression, and suicide. The following information highlights National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and NIOSH-funded resources for correctional workers.  
As we near the end of Correctional Officer Appreciation week, The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office wants to take a moment to express our sincere gratitude for the work and sacrifice displayed every day.  The dedication, professionalism and commitment of the Calaveras County Correctional Officers enhance he safety and security of our facilities.  Due to the nature of their work, it often goes unnoticed. While it may be unnoticed it is not unappreciated.   
            Working as a correctional officer can be a difficult and challenging carrier.  Long hours, working holidays and walking the most dangerous beat in law enforcement can be a rewarding and fulfilling carrier.   Calaveras County is actively accepting applications.  Interested persons are encouraged to visit. for more information to join our family.
