The weather may have cooled a bit, but things have been warming here at the Sheriff’s Office in regards to our outreach efforts, auctions, and gun lock campaign to promote gun safety.

From extra sheriff sales to back-to-back community events on any given day to pushing our Got a Gun—Get a Lock Campaign at every opportunity. We have been spreading information all across the city about the functions of the office all year-long and haven’t slowed a bit as the leaves begin to fall.
