Commissioners Court Recognizes Hard Work by Correctional Officers and Employees, Proclaims Week in their Honor
Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX – The Hays County Commissioners Court Tuesday proclaimed May 3-9 as National Correctional Officers and Employees Week in Hays County to commend correctional staff for their dedication and hard work.
“These employees are very deserving of praise for all they do to help keep our communities safe,” County Judge Bert Cobb, M.D., said. “They put their lives in danger every day to ensure the custody, care and reform of thousands of offenders and keep our jails safe and secure.” His remarks were echoed by the other Court members.
According to the proclamation, correctional officers and employees serve admirably in many different capacities, including jail administrators, wardens, chaplains, nurses, supervisors, managers and directors as well as correctional officers. They teach, train, mentor, counsel and treat offenders and provide them with hope and a new focus while preparing them for re-entry into society.
More than 120 correctional officers and other employees serve the citizens of Hays County at the Hays County jail on Uhland Road in San Marcos.
