Request from Sheriff Johnson:

I hope everyone is doing well during this current situation we are all facing. I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support for our department during these uncertain times. So many have reached out to our department and offered meal cards and prayers. You will never know what that support means during a time that we all sometimes feel helpless.  

I need your help with a couple of things.  

First, many places are using drive-thru and take-out service.  I want to remind everyone the importance of not throwing your trash out on the roads. The Inmate Work Center is not able to get out for trash pickup. I want everyone to be mindful of the problem trash causes on our roads and highways. Be very considerate and place your trash in the proper place and let’s not allow the current situation to cause more problems.  

The second thing I’m asking is that when you pray, you remember to pray specifically for the safety of my staff. We are using every precautionary measure available, but the risk is still high. Each one of us have a family we must come home to. We are asking that you just pray for their protection.  We know this too shall pass. Keep the faith and stay safe.
