Dedicated Deputies

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Last night I served the citizens of Hamilton County with the bravest and most dedicated sheriff deputies of any agency in the country.

Without question the past 24 hours have been trying for local law enforcement and emergency services. From EMT's and paramedics to EPB linemen and Public Works as well as police and fire departments and the correction officers at the County Jail, all have shown dedication to their jobs and to serving the citizens of Hamilton County.

Tonight, we'll be back out doing it again. 

I'm proud to serve alongside the men and women of the Sheriff's Office. Over the years, especially last night, I've seen the dedication these deputies have for serving the citizenry. I'll see it again tonight. 

So, sleep well Hamilton County. You have the best staying up in order to serve you and yours.
