Department of Corrections
Katrina Pollet, Executive Director
"Living in Finney County makes me happy. I like working with other agencies whose mission is to help people. People are friendly and there's so much to do!"
|Katrina hails from Delphos, Kansas and moved to Finney County in 2011 when she started her career with the organization.|
As Executive Director for the Department of Corrections, Katrina supervises the Juvenile Detention Center, Community Corrections, and Youth Services. She is Finney County's representative for all corrections-related issues to outside governments and the criminal justice system at the local, regional, state, and national levels. She writes grants, acts as the department's liaison to the County Commissioners and other advisory boards, and works to ensure goals and directives are measurable, attainable, and beneficial to the clients.
Katrina seeks to lead her department in their vision to empower change in each and every client through innovative and efficient programs, as well as holds an expectation of her staff to treat and see each client as the person they are, not as the crime they committed.
"My favorite thing about working for Finney County is the people around me - the laughter, the collaboration, and the shared desire to help people."
Katrina's hobbies include antiquing, reading, beach vacations, and spending time with family - her husband of 40 years, their three sons, daughters-in-law, and ten grandchildren.
Beth Beavers, Director of Operations
"My favorite thing about working for Finney County is the chance to work with great people who create great results. I have gained so much knowledge and learned how to help our clients succeed."
|Beth grew up in Kansas City, Missouri, and earned her Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice from Georgia State University. She moved with her husband to Finney County in 2003 to raise their children near family.|
She began working for Finney County in 2004 as an Intensive Supervision Officer with Community Corrections. In 2011, Beth was promoted to the director of that department. In 2016, when the new Community Services Center was built and the Department of Corrections was consolidated, Beth became the Director of Operations, overseeing the day-to-day operations for the Community Corrections division, the Youth Services division, and the Juvenile Detention Center.
"My personal vision for Finney County Department of Corrections is to empower those in need through education and accountability."
In her spare time, Beth enjoys reading, gardening, and spending time with her family.
