Corrections officers are trained law enforcement professionals responsible for supervising inmate conduct and behavior to maintain security within the facility. The operation of corrections facilities represents a crucial component of the criminal justice system in the United States. Corrections personnel play a vital role in protecting the rights of the public to be safeguarded from criminal activity.

“This week is dedicated to the corrections and medical professionals for public recognition,” said Escambia County Corrections Director Rich Powell. “They are a vital cog in the criminal justice system. Our staff serve this role nobly and selflessly, creating opportunities to contribute to building a safer community. Their service does not go unseen, nor unappreciated. It is with great pride that I be the first to tell our staff, ‘Thank you, you matter in our mission.'”
