The NCSO will be observing National Correctional Officers Week May 3rd through the 9th.

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan signed Proclamation 5187, creating "National Correctional Officers' Week." Each year, the first full week in May is recognized as National Correctional Officers and Employees Week, commemorating the contributions of correctional officers and personnel who work in jails, prisons, and community corrections across the country.

The services provided by the dedicated and hard working men and women of corrections are vital to every community.

I would also like to thank and recognize the families of these correctional officers as well. These men and women are also husbands, wives, mothers and fathers and often have to miss school activities, holidays, weekends and other activities with their families because of the job.

Would you please join me in thanking our Navarro County Sheriffs Office correctional officers for their dedication and commitment to our community.

I very much appreciate each and every one of you and the service that you provide daily.

Sheriff Elmer Tanner
