The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office announces it is observing National Correctional Officers and Employees Week which runs from May 6 through May 12. The observance was created by President Ronald Reagan in 1984 to recognize “the contributions of correctional officers to our Nation.” Sheriff Craig DuMond says his department’s highly devoted corrections personnel do more than “guard” offenders. They treat, counsel, train, teach and rebuild lives and for that DuMond commended all those who serve or who have served in and throughout the corrections profession this past year.
