Public Service Recognition Week is May 5-11

Posted May 8, 2019 by

Celebrated the first full week in May since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) is a time set aside to honor the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees. Throughout the nation and the world, public servants use this occasion to educate others about the work they do and why they have chosen public service careers, as well as the many ways government services make life better for all of us.

Share your pride! Starting May 5, we encourage you to share this Facebook image and tell everyone you know that you are a proud public servant! Use hashtags #PSRW & #OCSEA and make sure your post is public.

OR take photos with union members, co-workers, family members, pets, community officials and more using the following PDFs and email them this week to We will share them next week.
