The City of Troy is celebrating the first full week of May as National Corrections Officers Week.

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan signed Proclamation 518, creating National Correctional Officers Week.

Each year, the first full week in May is Correctional Officers and Employees Week, commemorating the contributions of correctional officers and personnel who work in jails, prisons and community corrections across the country.
