The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Celebrate the work of corrections professionals


To The Eagle:

On May 5, 1984, then-President Ronald Reagan issued Proclamation 5187-National Correctional Officers’ Week, in which he called “upon officials of State and local governments and the people of the United States to observe this week with appropriate ceremonies and activities,” to recognize “the contributions of correctional officers to our nation.”

President Reagan was the first president to formally recognize the great work of those in our profession and the very difficult, and at times dangerous, nature of corrections work. He wrote that correctional officers are “essential to the day-to-day operations of these institutions; without them it would be impossible to achieve the foremost institutional goals of security and control.”

Corrections professionals know all too well the risks and challenges associated with the work each of you do. We need to take time to congratulate our brothers and sisters in the field for their successes in protecting the public.

Please join us in celebrating our Wahkiakum County Corrections Officers and employees Vernon Barton, Raedyn Grasseth, Jo Ann Barton, Aric Cothren, Dave Davis, Betty Mach, Kevin Maki, Austin Smith, and Eddie Watters.

Chief Civil Deputy, Wah. County Sheriff's Office
