Puppy moment

As we walked up, they greeted us and thanked us for what we do. Something so simple can make your day… Lt. Stark stated, “It’s not often law enforcement receives a thank you from those we come into contact with but when it comes from a small child, it means a lot.” This was a puppy moment!

Puppies, puppies everywhere...

I was contacted back in March, 2018 by Ms. Darleen Currier and she told me that she sews stuffed puppies. She asked if we would like some to give to the children that come in contact with the Sheriff’s Office deputies and detectives. I told her Absolutely!!!

Ms. Currier and her son, Marc Cox, delivered 315 puppies last week. The puppies were divided into bags of five each. Each bag will be placed in each car and distributed to the children that we come into contact with. Ms. Currier said she made them day and night for the last four months. Each

Terrific Thursday

It’s the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind…let it be something good. Have a totally Terrific Thursday! Michele Bell, PIO
