May 7-13 was a huge week for the department – National
Nurses Week, National Correctional Officers and Employees Week (NCEW), and
Public Service Recognition Week.
With all the
award ceremonies, barbeques, wellness activities, and fun happenings around the
state, the Executive Team had the chance
to join in the fun too. As they made their way around the state they laughed,
ate, and even kissed a pig!
Two of our own were
invited to join the Governor’s signing of the State Employee Recognition Day
proclamation - you can still catch the feed. Make sure you look for DRCI
Sergeant Mark Hall and OSP Correctional Officer Elias Otero (on the right side
of the video).
Also, so many incredible
and hilarious pictures were captured – in fact, too many to share. Make sure
you go and check them out on our DOC Facebook page.
Each one of our team
members makes important contributions to helping the adults in our custody and
those on supervision prepare to become productive citizens. This work does not
go without notice, and we hope they felt the gratitude over the week and let it
continue throughout the year.
