Thanks to Iron & Rustic Arts of Berryville These good folks made plaques for each of our CCSO deputies as well as other officers in Carroll County. We are so grateful for such support in our community. Text of each plaque .... "When I put on my uniform Lord, please help me be courageous and protective, serving my community. If I should have to risk my life, help me to be brave, give me wisdom, give me strength when there re lives to save. Remind me why I wear this badge and to fulfill the call, remind me that You're here with me and watching over all. And when the day is over Lord, most of all I pray, that I'll come home to those I love safely every day. Amen."
