National Correctional Officers Week

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office and other area sheriff’s offices are saluting its correctional officers during National Correctional Officers Week which runs from May 5 through May 11.

We spoke with Captain Jesse Sterrett, Jail Administrator, about the crucial role correctional officers perform.



The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office took to its Facebook page to recognize its correctional officers and that post can be seen below.

Captain Sterrett recently took over as Jail Administrator from Captain Kidwell, who retired, and you can read more about that by clicking here.
