Pima juvenile detention officer honored nationally

Citizen Staff Writer

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.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
