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 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 especially important to show our appreciation to those around us and 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 is an important information resource to so many of you.
When considering traveling home for the holidays, please keep in mind that COVID-19 is still existent in the world and in our community. If you are traveling to enjoy time with your family, please remember to wash your hands frequently, avoid close contact with others, and wear a cloth face covering in public.
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.
- 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 holiday!
All county offices will be closed Thursday and Friday in observance of Thanksgiving.
Have a safe, happy & healthy holiday!
