My name is Rebecca Proutt (Dawson) and I am a correctional officer in Kamloops, B.C. I am currently writing my master's thesis on mental health concerns and the resources available to correctional officers working in B.C. corrections. I bring a unique viewpoint to this research because in addition to studying corrections, I also work in the field.
Since I work in the field, I am acutely aware of the importance of confidentiality and anonymity. Due to this, I would like to assure you, that absolutely no raw data or information will be shared with the employer or the union at any time. They will receive a copy of the published report that will be void of any identifiers. Your participation will help develop further research opportunities and resources for correctional officers in British Columbia.
The survey will be open until January 15, 2021. 

To participate, follow the link below and enter the included password. 
This survey has not been approved by the employer to complete during working hours and doing so may be considered theft of time.
Thank you for your time and participation,
Rebecca Proutt (Dawson)
