We would like to thank all the ladies from the Cedarhurst Quilters for all the quilts they donated to the Sheriffs Office. Their donations last year were greatly appreciated over this last cold winter! You ladies are awesome! Sheriff Allen

With the number of people buying and selling items online rapidly growing, we want you to know the Sheriff’s Office lobby and/or parking lot is available to make your exchanges. The first rule of safety when buying or selling online is to pick a safe meeting location. That’s why today we posted two parking spots in the west parking lot of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office next to 10th street with these signs. This area is video recorded twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Police Officers and Correctional Officers often come and go from the building using this west parking lot. When someone has bad intentions they will most likely avoid meeting at places like the Sheriff’s Office. We want to do everything we can to help everyone stay safe. Thank you, Chief Deputy Clint Taylor

First responders from throughout Jefferson County will be training at Woodlawn Grade School today. Don’t be alarmed with the large number of emergency vehicles at the school. They are training to better serve our communities!

Topics included gun safety, internet safety, ATV safety, avoiding dangerous objects they might find along side the roadway such as needles and meth lab making materials. Educating and keeping our children safe is a top priority for our office.

Tomorrow, most every cell phone user across the United States will receive a text message on the same day at the same time. The message will be titled "Presidential Alert." The U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) system on Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2018.
