Honoring Our Veterans and Active Duty Military

Each year on November 11th, we recognize and honor the millions of men and women who have selflessly answered the call to serve in our nation’s armed forces. Our country’s greatness is founded on these individuals’ courage and sacrifice.

We are proud to have 25 Veterans and/or Active Reservists as part of our team at ACCC, with each individual bringing the same unwavering commitment, discipline, and resilience they gained during their service to our country. These qualities acquired through their military experience not only enrich our team but also strengthen the very foundation of our agency, ensuring we are better equipped to face any challenge and serve our community with dedication and integrity.

We are immensely grateful for the service, bravery, dedication, and sacrifice of all Veterans and Active Duty Military. Your contributions mean the world to us, not just on Veterans Day, but every day.

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them.” — John F. Kennedy

Happy Human Resource Professionals Day

Happy Human Resource Professionals Day! Today, on Tuesday, September 26th, we have a wonderful opportunity to recognize and celebrate the contributions of our five (5) dedicated HR Professionals who work tirelessly to support our agency’s success.

Human Resource Professionals Day was first introduced by Governor-General Sir Patrick Allen back in October 2013, with the aim to acknowledge and celebrate the pivotal role that HR professionals play in nurturing and developing human capital, which is essential for the success of any organization.

Our agency’s HR Professionals carry out a multitude of critical responsibilities that are vital to our agency’s smooth operation. They most importantly work hard to support and encourage positive relationships with our most valuable assets – our employees. Their primary goal is to ensure that our team members thrive and that their well-being is protected. This involves assisting the EMT in recruiting the right candidates, conducting interviews, processing payroll, and meticulously maintaining employee records.

In addition to these tasks, our HR team is responsible for a wide range of vital functions, including people support and management, employee benefits administration, agency culture cultivation, compensation planning, training and development, risk management, technology integration, and generally supporting agency maintenance and growth.

As we celebrate HR Professionals Day, I encourage each of us to take a moment to express our gratitude to our HR Professionals—Phil,  Craig, Corrie, Kelly & Terry. Their dedication, knowledge, and hard work are large contributors to our agency’s continued success.

ACCC Recognizes Juneteenth

Juneteenth, also known as Emancipation Day or Freedom Day, holds significant historical and cultural importance in our nation. On this day, we honor and celebrate the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in the United States. It marks the momentous occasion when news of the Emancipation Proclamation reached Galveston, Texas on June 19, 1865, two and a half years after it was initially issued. Juneteenth represents a powerful symbol of freedom, resilience, and the ongoing struggle for equality and justice.

We recognize the significance of Juneteenth and its role in our shared history. It is a time to reflect upon the progress made and to reaffirm our commitment to building an inclusive and equitable community.

ACCC Honors Home Detention Officers/Special Deputies for “2023 National Police Week”

During “National Police Week,” we honor the brave men and women in who put their lives on the line every day to protect and serve our communities and pay special tribute those who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty while serving and protecting others. We thank them for their service and sacrifice and stand with them in solidarity. Let’s take a moment to appreciate the dedication and hard work of our law enforcement officers everywhere and express our gratitude for all that they sacrifice to keep us safe.

The history of “National Police Week” dates back to 1962, when President Kennedy signed a proclamation designating May 15th as “National Peace Officers Memorial Day.” This day was set aside to honor law enforcement officers who had fallen or been disabled while serving their communities. The calendar week in which May 15th falls was then designated as “National Police Week,” in recognition of the devoted and selfless work of law enforcement officers to protect the communities and citizens of our nation through the enforcement of our laws, regardless of the peril or hazard to themselves.

In 1994, President Bill Clinton amended the declaration to include the direction that the United States flag on all government buildings be flown at half-staff on May 15th, unless that day is also “Armed Forces Day,” which is commemorated on the third Saturday in May.

Join us this week as we honor and extend our heartfelt appreciation and thanks to our own Home Detention Officers/Special Deputies for their commitment to protect and serve.  Our law enforcement team works tirelessly putting their lives on the line every day to protect ours and to ensure the safety and well-being of our participants and community. Their dedication and commitment to serving the public is a shining example of the selflessness and bravery that characterizes our law enforcement community. Thank you for all that you do, and for your service to our community!

ACCC Honors Employees for Correctional Officers & Employees Week

Happy National Correctional Officers and Correctional Employee Week to all of the hardworking individuals at Allen County Community Corrections! We want to take the opportunity this week to recognize and express our appreciation for our team’s dedication and commitment to behavior change and community safety.

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the first full week of May as “National Correctional Officer/Employee Week” to honor correctional officers who demonstrate professionalism, integrity, and strength in their challenging and demanding work environment. The following year, this same week was also established as “Public Service Recognition Week” to acknowledge all federal, state, county, and local government employees who work tirelessly to serve their communities and promote and protect the public interest.

ACCC employs and supports a large team who serve as agents of change in the field.  Join us in thanking them for their dedication and commitment to their duties, working daily to promote those we serve while also focusing on the well-being of our community.
