As a corrections officer, you start your day on high alert, ready for anything — helping an inmate struggling with addictions, de-escalating conflict before it gets ugly, delivering urgent medical care, or working with an inmate to take the next
step in their life.
You never know what you’ll get at the start of that day.
But when it’s over, you do know this: you’ve helped make Saskatchewan a better, safer place to live — for all of us.
Supporting our corrections officers
SGEU recently commissioned a survey, conducted by Viewpoints Research, of over 1,000 Saskatchewan residents to gather information on how the public views corrections officers.
We also conducted an internal survey of corrections officers, where over 250 members replied.
The results are clear: the people of Saskatchewan support the important work of corrections officers.
