Staff at Idaho Maximum Security Institution kicked off Correctional Professionals Week with a flag-raising ceremony at the entrance to the prison.

“Special thanks to Honor Guard members Larissa Pfeifer and Ryan Stephenson,” says IMSI Warden Al Ramirez.

On May 5th, 1984, President Ronald Reagan signed Proclamation 5187 creating “National Correctional Officers Week”.

Since then the first full week in May has been marked to recognize and to honor the work of Correctional Officers and Correctional Personnel Nationwide.
