CCA, America's leader in partnership corrections, is celebrating its officers and the many other corrections professionals who are committed to keeping communities safe and bettering the lives of those entrusted to the company's care.
This week at CCA facilities across the U.S., staffs are taking time out to recognize the contributions of officers and employees who are committed to excellence in corrections.
"In partnership with government, our professionals provide a meaningful public service," said Damon Hininger, CCA President and CEO. "It is our goal every day to operate the highest quality adult corrections company in the U.S., with dedicated employees who inspire and help one another."
While correctional officers represent the largest employee group at CCA facilities, the company's nationwide workforce also includes teachers, counselors, nurses, chaplains and administrative staff.
"We call on all career disciplines within our organization to maintain the highest standards," said Harley Lappin, CCA Chief of Corrections. "We value loyalty and integrity in our work and dedicate ourselves to protecting our communities, individuals in our care and each other."
