Serving the Public as Corrections Officers, One Generation at a Time

In many families throughout Michigan, public service is a tradition.

The McVeans are one of those families. Jim (Mack) McVean just retired after a career with the MDOC of more than 25 years. His son, Maxwell, recently celebrated his 10-year anniversary with the MDOC.

“We started working together at Macomb, and I was disappointed when he had to transfer, but he had definitely made himself a place (at RGC) in Jackson,” Jim McVean said.

They both have carried out their duties as part of law enforcement with professionalism and excellence.
