We Must Address Our Mental Health Crisis
OVU’s mission is to provide a platform for Correctional Officers and professional staff to have their voices heard and their concerns addressed in the ongoing debates over reforming our correctional system.
Our annual event “Elevating Our Profession” was created to do just that while honoring, inspiring and celebrating the corrections profession.
This year’s event takes place April 24th to 26th in Chicago, IL.
We are a national campaign to give corrections officers a voice.
Too often correctional officers and other professional staff who work inside correctional facilities are left out of conversations about incarceration and the criminal justice system.
Leaving out people who are involved in the system each and every day makes it harder to create any change or improve conditions of work and confinement while reducing recidivism after release.
Together, we are improving reform efforts and supporting their successful implementation by elevating the vital role of corrections officers and other frontline staff.
