Taking up the charge of a new national initiative, Missouri Governor Eric Greitens visited the Algoa Correctional Center on Monday, Aug. 14, to #MeetFacetoFace with corrections officers.
“I wish every Missourian could see what our corrections officers do every day,” Gov. Greitens wrote on his Facebook page. “They have important, difficult jobs that help to keep Missourians safe.”
Face to Face—which is sponsored by the National Reentry Resource Center in partnership with the Association of State Correctional Administrators, JustLeadershipUSA, and the National Center for Victims of Crime—challenges all elected officials to participate in a series of public activities through which they can interact with people who are in prison or jail, corrections officers, victims of crime, and others who have firsthand experience with the correctional system.
