Merry Christmas


Sheriff-Christmas.jpg
As the holiday season approaches, I want to personally take this time to acknowledge our staff and thank them for their important contribution to this office and our community. I want to thank each and every one of our deputies and civilian staff for their hard work and encourage you to do the same when you see them.
 
Their hard work and dedication to our office and our community is something we are all very thankful for - not just during the holiday season, but all year-round. It has been a particularly difficult year for everyone, and we believe it is very important to show our appreciation to those around us and especially to all essential workers.
 
I would also like to acknowledge our community for their tremendous support and efforts in helping make our area a safer place to live and raise a family. We appreciate your input and assistance and are happy to know our website and Facebook page are important information resources to so many of you.
 
If you do decide to travel, keep the following safety tips in mind:
 
- Buckle your seatbelt always.
 
- Don't drink and drive - even one alcoholic drink can reduce your abilities and impair your judgment.
 
- Keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel - eating, changing music stations, and digging for items in the floorboard or back seat can lead to trouble. Instead, pull over and take a break.
 
- Be courteous - because of the volume of vehicles on the road, you're bound to run into a few traffic jams, be cut off, or be forced to stop short - remain calm and courteous - don't let other drivers ruin your holidays
 
Have a safe, happy & healthy holiday season.
 
 
Merry Christmas
 
Sheriff Eric King
