Each year, the first full week of May is designated National Correctional Officers and Employees Week, a time to recognize the enormous contributions made by correctional officers and personnel working in jails, prisons and corrections facilities across America. These men and women work tirelessly to protect our communities and help many criminal offenders rebuild their lives.
Averett University salutes these dedicated professionals and anyone who is pursuing or thinking about a career in criminal justice. We’re proud of the many graduates of our criminal justice degree programs who have gone on to be catalysts of positive change in the community, in the nation and in the world. Thank you for your service!
