What’s In A Name?
Those of us who work in Corrections know that anytime stories are published or aired by the media with respect to Correctional Officers, more often than not they portray us in a negative light. Hats off to Reporter Cody Leibowitz of WMDT Channel 47 News who gave us the respect we deserve. In his story regarding the upcoming COAD Breakfast with Santa, he referred to us as Correctional Officers rather than the all to familiar perjorative term used by many in the media, Prison Guards. This is just one more positve step in rebuilding our image. Cody, thanks for getting it right!
