Lieutenant E. Zavala and HR Manager Martha Combs from our San Luis Regional Detention Center visited the Cannon Air Defense Complex at the Marine Corps Air Station, based in Yuma, AZ, and spoke with dozens of active duty U.S. Marines. The marines were departing from the military and Lt. Zavala and Ms. Combs introduced the potential correctional career opportunities that are outside of the Armed Forces.

Lt. Zavala, a U.S. Marine veteran, discussed his personal experience working in corrections and the endless career opportunities in law enforcement. The San Luis Regional Detention and Support Center extended an invitation that allows active Marines the opportunity to tour the facility, in hopes to promoting correctional careers after serving in the military and to establish positive rapport for future collaboration. Emerald prides itself in its support of all veterans and the career opportunities that they extend to them at all of our facilities.

The SLRDSC would like to extend our gratitude to the Cannon Air Defense Complex and MCAS Yuma for the invitation and hospitality.
