July 18, 2018

ATLANTA - Governor Nathan Deal has issued a proclamation declaring July 15 through July 21 as "Community Supervision Week." The week is set aside to honor and celebrate the important work performed by the men and women who serve and protect Georgia citizens through effective and efficient community-based offender supervision.

The proclamation reads, in part, “Community supervision professionals are a ‘true force for Positive Change’ in their communities.”

Georgia Department of Community Supervision (DCS) Commissioner Michael Nail says DCS officers are agents of positive change. “It is a great honor and privilege to have the important work performed by the men and women of DCS recognized by Governor Deal and the citizens of Georgia," said Nail. "DCS officers are dedicated community corrections professionals who daily make positive, lasting change in neighborhoods throughout Georgia. Our officers are the embodiment of One Officer, One Family, One Community."

As the state's felony community supervision provider, DCS employs more than 2,200 professionals dedicated to serving Georgia's citizens and sustaining Georgia as a recognized leader in the field of community-based offender supervision.
