Pima juvenile detention officer honored nationally

Shannon Lanning, a Tucson mom who is a detention officer at Pima County Juvenile Court, has received a national award for outstanding service.

The senior juvenile detention officer has worked with children in detention for seven years.

“It really is her positive engagement with kids that helps build the kids’ motivation toward improving their behavior,” division director for detention Dodie Ledbetter said referring to Lanning.

Ledbetter said Lanning also serves as a role model for other detention officers and staff.

Lanning was selected as line staff worker of the year through the Bob Rader Awards, presented each year by the National Juvenile Detention Association in Richmond, Ky., to recognize outstanding juvenile detention workers.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
