Sheriff’s Office observes National Correctional Officers Week
Press Release, Sheriff Randy Bower
ALBION – This week is National Correctional Officers Week.
The Orleans County Jail, as a unit of the Office of the Sheriff, shares the principle that the jail is part of the community and the community is part of the jail. The Corrections Division is committed to meet the standards of the community in a combined effort to promote safety, security, and opportunities for rehabilitation. Their values include respect, responsibility, honesty, and caring for others and themselves.
The responsibility of the Corrections Division is to operate a safe and secure detention facility in compliance with the New York State Corrections Law and with regulations set forth by the New York State Commission of Corrections. The staff of 38 corrections officers has the difficult and often dangerous assignment of ensuring the security, safety, and well-being of the inmates in our county jail. Their position is essential to the day-to-day operations, and without them it would be impossible to achieve the foremost institutional goals of care, custody, and control of around 600 inmates annually.
Please join me in recognizing our Corrections Officers at the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office for all their hard work, dedication and service to our community.
