Hump Day!

Discretion is the better part of valor… Happy Hump Day! Michele Bell, PIO


We’d like to give a BIG shout out to Ms. Margaret Stein. She donated numerous, brand new, beautiful bears for the children that our deputies come in contact with. These bears are sure to bring a smile to a child’s face. Accepting the bears are Lt. Chris Hans, Ms. Margaret and A/P Clerk Joe Carter. Thank you Ms. Margaret! (Now I just have to get the bears back from Lt. Hans and Joe; you guys can’t keep them…) LOL Michele Bell, PIO

Thank you Ladies!

Today three of our detention deputies were in Port St. Lucie for crossover training.

The ladies just wanted to thank our guys for their service. What a wonderful surprise! Thank you ladies!!! Michele Bell, PIO
