EWING - The New Jersey Juvenile Justice Commission (JJC) recently honored Victor Daly as its 2005 Parole Officer of the Year. Officer Daly was cited for his professionalism and dedication.

Officer Daly began his career in JJC in 1996 as a parole officer assigned to the northern counties of the state. He was promoted to Senior Parole Officer in August 1997. He is currently responsible for the delivery of parole services to Middlesex County.

Officer Daly has a Bachelor’s Degree from Rutgers University in the Administration of Justice. In October 1999, he completed the Top Gun Training for the Statewide Narcotics Task Force. His dedication to excellence resulted in his election, in 2004, as Central Region Vice President of PBA Local #326 which represents parole officers. He is active in the community as a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity and as a member of the Middlesex County Outreach Program. Officer Daly was previously recognized as the Officer of the Year in 2000.

“I chose this career opportunity because of my desire to work with at-risk youth and their families,” said Officer Daly. “The Juvenile Justice Commission has given me the opportunity to serve in a law enforcement capacity.”

“Through his professionalism on the job and his commitment to his community, Parole Officer Victor Daly has proven to be a role model and mentor for the juvenile residents in JJC facilities as well as for young people in his community," said Howard L. Beyer, Executive Director of the Juvenile Justice Commission. "The JJC is committed to realizing the potential of the youth in its care and helping them change the direction of their futures. Our dedicated and experienced law enforcement staff play a critical role in fulfilling this mission."

The Juvenile Justice Commission employs approximately 41 highly trained parole officers. Each officer is required to have a bachelor’s degree and must complete an intensive training course at the JJC's Training Academy, which not only includes physical training, CPR and written exercises, but teaches officers to communicate with youth and instructs staff on techniques to diffuse tense situations.

This award is bestowed annually upon one officer from the JJC’s Office of Parole and Transitional Services. The recipient of this award is selected based on outstanding job performance, exemplary work records, and service to the community.

The award is given in conjunction with a proclamation issued by New Jersey Acting Governor Richard J. Codey declaring the week of May 2-6 as "Correctional Officer Appreciation Week." The proclamation recognizes the men and women who uphold justice and keep New Jersey's communities safe through their dedication and experience.
