Those Who Live in Freedom Will Always Be Grateful To Those Who Helped Preserve It

Initially established to celebrate world peace and the end of World War I, Veterans Day has evolved from “Armistice Day” into a national holiday honoring current and former members of the United States Armed Forces who swore an oath to protect our country.

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 built on the foundation of their courage and sacrifice.

On this Veterans Day, let us commit to always remember and honor the contributions made by our nation’s veterans; let us show our appreciation for those who have been willing to risk it all to ensure our nation and our values endure.

To those who have served and those who continue to serve, ACCC wishes you a Happy Veterans Day! We owe you our thanks, but more than that we owe you our freedom. To those who secure our way of life… Thank You for your bravery, your service, and your sacrifice.

“Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother and serves, as he best can, the same cause” – Abraham Lincoln

ACCC Honors Employees for National Police Week

Occurring every May, National Police Week will be observed from Sunday, May 15th through Saturday, May 21st, in honor of America’s law enforcement community while also paying special recognition to law enforcement officers who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

In 1962, President Kennedy signed a proclamation designating May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day, in honor of those law enforcement officers who had fallen or been disabled in the line of duty, and the calendar week in which May 15th falls as National Police Week, in recognition of law enforcement officers who work devotedly and selflessly to protect the communities and citizens of our nation through the enforcement of our laws, regardless of the peril or hazard to themselves. Later 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.

Allen County Community Corrections (ACCC) employs 15 sworn Special Deputies with the Allen County Police Department and one K-9 in the agency’s Field Division as Home Detention Officers to ensure participant compliance with the rules and conditions of ACCC and enforce the criminal laws of the state of Indiana. On duty 24/7/365, ACCC’s Home Detention Officers monitor the daily activities and compliance of individuals supervised by ACCC for alternative sentencing through random unannounced visits to their homes, places of employment, and approved pass locations. Our Officers also support the agency and participants in a myriad of other ways.

Join us this week as we honor our Home Detention Officers and all local law enforcement and their commitment to protect and serve, who put their lives on the line every day to protect ours. We thank you all for your courage, dedication, service, and sacrifice to keep us and our communities safe. ACCC celebrates and appreciates you for your service and could not fulfill its mission and dedication to public safety without each of you.

ACCC Honors Employees for Correctional Officers & Employees Week

Celebrated the first full week of May, National Correctional Officers and Employees Week will be observed from Sunday, May 1st to Saturday, May 7th, 2022, to honor employees’ steadfast dedication to public service in the field of corrections. Executive Director Kim Churchward and Assistant Director Danielle Edenfield currently manage and mentor 136 dedicated individuals employed by Allen County Community Corrections (ACCC) in 7 unique agency divisions.

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the first full week of May as National Correctional Officers Week to honor correctional officers, who exemplify professionalism, integrity, and strength in the face of a difficult and often demanding work environment; and in 1985, that same week was set aside as Public Service Recognition Week to commemorate the individuals who serve the nation as federal, state, county, and local government employees who work to better serve the public and the communities in which they live.

President Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Do what you can with all you have, wherever you are,” and that’s exactly what staff at ACCC do. ACCC employees consistently rise to meet every challenge presented to them and fulfill an important, but often unseen, public service without any expectation of recognition or praise. The field of corrections and community supervision, especially for those who work on the front lines serving often our communities most in need, can be taxing and stressful. Despite the challenges each of their varied professional roles present, ACCC employees persistently show up with a smile, support one another while also supporting the citizens that we serve, and work efficiently to protect our community.

To honor the persevering work ACCC staff do, and the sacrifices they make for their community, ACCC, and its participants, ACCC will be acknowledging each of their employees the week of May 1st for their dedication, commitment, and contributions as public servants in the field of corrections. To all ACCC employees past and present, ACCC celebrates and appreciates you for your service and could not fulfill its mission and dedication to public safety without each of you.

ACCC Honors Administrative Staff for Administrative Professionals Day

Administrative Professionals Day is celebrated the Wednesday of the last full week of April to recognize the immeasurable contributions of devoted and valued administrative professionals.

The International Association of Administrative Professionals defines administrative professionals as individuals who are responsible for administrative tasks and coordination of information in support of an office-related environment and who are dedicated to furthering their personal and professional growth in their chosen profession.

Thirteen (13) administrative staff are employed by ACCC in four (4) different, unique divisions of the agency’s seven (7) divisions. With incredibly diverse, continually evolving responsibilities and roles among ACCC’s administrative staff, these thirteen (13) are alike in that they wear many hats, exhibit grace under pressure, and often go above and beyond their regular scope of duties for the divisions they support and the agency at large.

In appreciation for all ACCC’s Administrative personnel do behind-the-scenes to maintain office decorum and seamless day-to-day operations, ACCC acknowledges each of their invaluable administrative staff Wednesday, April 27th, for their hard work and unwavering dedication to ensure smooth operations and support staff in any way they can. The work these thirteen (13) staff do is essentially the glue that holds ACCC together. ACCC sees and celebrates you, appreciates you, and could not function efficiently and fulfill its mission and dedication to public safety without each of you.

ACCC Communications Staff Honored for National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week

National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week (NPSTW) is celebrated every second week of April to express gratitude and acknowledge and honor the work of telecommunications personnel in public safety. Seventeen (17) telecommunications staff are employed by ACCC in its Communications division, working round-the-clock, 24 hours day, 7 days a week.

On a daily basis, ACCC’s Communications Staff receive and document thousands of phone calls yearly from program participants, beginning and ending each with a sense of calm while remaining level-headed and telephonically demonstrating assertiveness, kindness, compassion, empathy, and respect when assisting participants in times of stress, worry, and uncertainty. As if that’s not enough, ACCC’s exceptional multi-tasking Communications Staff also closely monitor the whereabouts of over 500 individuals on average on GPS-monitoring/electronic monitoring each day, in addition to installing and troubleshooting participants’ monitoring equipment, processing  over one million GPS alerts yearly, processing clients’ weekly schedules and dispatching Home Detention Officers.

To honor the work ACCC’s Communications staff do and the sacrifices they make for their community, ACCC and its program participants, and field personnel, ACCC acknowledges each of their public safety telecommunicators the week of April 10th.  ACCC celebrates you, appreciates you, and could not fulfill its mission and dedication to public safety without each of you.
