I believe we have some of the most dedicated deputies, administrative, jail, and civilian staff in the history of our office. I want to thank each and everyone of them for their hard work and encourage you to do the same when you see them.
I would also like to acknowledge our community for their tremendous support and efforts in helping to make Jefferson County a safer place to live and raise a family. We appreciate your input and assistance and are happy to know our website is so important to so many of you.
We look forward to the holiday season, and we hope you do as well. My commitment to the citizens of this County remains strong, and I will continue to work with the members of our community to improve the quality of life for each of you.
