Annual report picture.jpg


June 18th, 2019

On Tuesday, I presented the County Council an annual report outlining the work of Sheriff's Office in protecting our community from violent and dangerous criminals. As part of that report, I emphasized the the impact mental health and substance abuse issues have on our community and the criminal justice system and the value and techniques, where safe and appropriate, of diverting people from the criminal justice system and jail to mental health or substance abuse treatment. I also encouraged Council to re-think a plan to replace the jail. I also reported on our work in preparation for natural and man made disasters.
