Don’t forget that Friday is Valentine’s Day; a small gift or gesture can sure make a man’s quality of life better. Remember, behind every good man are several good women.

Not long ago, we received a grant which allowed us to purchase new helmets, shields and radios for our SORT team. We recently put that new equipment to good use when we assisted Newton County with a search warrant. Officer safety is of utmost importance to us, and grants can, and do, enhance our ability to provide the latest and best in safety equipment.

We went to a hunting club off of County Road 200 where we found a late model pickup loaded on a lowboy trailer, unfortunately both the trailer and the truck had been completely destroyed by fire.

We have 110 in jail today. Keep your potatoes dry as it is too wet to plow for planting just yet. Spring will eventually arrive and, when the trees start putting on their leaves, it will dry up - - I think.

We are in the process of filling two officer positions within our department and hopefully, we will once again have a full crew.
