Fellow Sheriffs and Deputies,
As we head in to the new year I’m so excited and honored to lead this Association. One of my goals for this year is to make contact, in person or by phone, to find out how your offices are operating and to find out if there is something that we can do to help you. I believe our Association is here for each of us, to assist us in operating our offices with maximum efficiency, effectiveness, and safety. Whether this is through training, legislative opportunities, or just a question answered, we are here for you.
I encourage each of you to continue, or start, assisting with the operation of the Boys and Girls Ranch. You can do this through fundraising opportunities or by offering to help with the maintenance or other operations with manpower. I believe that this camp may be one of the most important things that we do, by offering these children what may be their only positive interaction with other people and more especially with law enforcement.
Finally, I would like to encourage each of you to attend the association board meetings to witness and participate in how we work to serve you.
I am honored to be your President, I am honored to be the Sheriff of Scott County, and I am honored to be associated with such a great group as you. I look forward to speaking to you.
Tony Hampton, Sheriff
Scott County Sheriff’s Office
