President Ronald Reagan was the first president to recognize the great and sometimes extremely difficult work of those in the corrections profession. Correction officers are critical to the day to day operations of correctional facilities. On May 5, 1984 Reagan issued Proclamation 5187, as National Corrections Officers Week.
