Honoring Corrections Officers During CO Week 2022

May 1-7 is Correctional Officers Week!

Thank you, officers, for keeping prisons and communities safe and secure. As front line staff behind the walls, officers put their personal safety on the line for public safety. We truly believe corrections officers work Michigan’s toughest job.

For the past four decades, MCO has obtained a proclamation from the governor recognizing CO week. We are pleased that this long-standing tradition was honored again this year.

To say these are challenging times would be an understatement. MCO leaders
and staff understand all that is being asked of corrections officers in this critical moment. Working through this this staffing crisis and pandemic,
putting your personal health on the line, distancing yourselves from family,
and working a massive amount of overtime. Leaders and staff cannot thank you
enough for meeting the challenges of this time with professionalism.

Stay safe and well.
