As this year ends and the new year begins, I would like to take this opportunity to extend our best wishes for a safe and prosperous New Year from all of us at the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. We look forward to helping make 2017 a wonderful and safe year for our county and community.
As we approach the new year, my commitment to the citizens of this County remains strong and I will continue to work with you to improve the quality of life for the current and future residents of Jefferson County. It is my hope that 2017 will be a year when members in our community more often extend a helping hand to their neighbors, coworkers, family, friends, and strangers in need.
It is a real pleasure to say "thank you" to our community as we wish you a full year of happiness and success.
Please contact my office if my staff and I can be of assistance.
