Whitley County Commissioner George Schrumpf presented Jail Commander Sean Martin with a copy of the commissionersâ€™ proclamation Monday afternoon.
Whitley County Commissioners took time in the middle of their regular meeting Monday to applaud the Corrections Officers that work in the jail and work release center.
â€śI know itâ€™s a hard job sometimes, but what you do is invaluable to our community,â€ť said Commissioner Chairman George Schrumpf to Whitley County Jail Commander Sean Martin.
The Commissioners signed a proclamation declaring this week, May 4 through May 10, as National Correctional Officers Week.
The nationwide recognition is observed this week for the â€śprofessional, hard-working and dedicatedâ€ť officers that protect those in their custody and ensure public safety.
â€śThe corrections profession is one of the most challenging and noble professions one can pursue,â€ť read Schrumpf from the proclamation.
