Use the following tips to keep make your car, and items kept within it, safer from crime. 

  • Never leave the car unlocked. Before you lock it, make sure you have your keys.
  • At night, park in a well-lit area.
  • Always close all windows, especially the vent window, lock them and activate the anti-theft device.
  • Put any valuables or packages in the trunk. Leaving valuable items in full view invites thieves.
  • Never leave the title or registration in the car. Thieves can use these important documents to sell the car or impersonate you if challenged by the police.
  • Control your keys. Keep your car keys and house keys on separate rings. Never have an identification tag such as a miniature license plate or name plate on your key ring. Never hide an extra key in or on the car, criminals know where to look for extra keys.

Sheriff’s Message for Fall '16

Hello all,

As our summer winds down, I wanted to take a few moments and share some thoughts with our Community.

The summer of 2016 has proven to be a trying time for law enforcement agencies across this great nation. Unfortunately, we in the business of providing police services and law enforcement, seem to be under attack by a small and hateful segment of society. As of this writing, law enforcement agencies in the United States have lost 79 officers.

As a show of respect for our fellow law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line-of-duty, we encourage our employees to wear a “mourning band” over our badge for a period of time after a line-of-duty death. This black elastic band serves to reinforce the bonds that we in the law enforcement community share. It also causes us all to reflect on the inherent risks and dangers that are ever present on our streets and in our Jails.

I want to assure the communities that, despite the trying times we are experiencing, our deputies on the road patrol and in the Jail will continue to perform their duties with professionalism and with dignity and respect for all of the people we encounter in the community.

And, while we have gone through a difficult summer, we have also seen unprecedented community support. Like many other police agencies across the country, we have experienced countless gestures of kindness from the community.

People who we have never met have brought handmade cards, cakes and cookies to the Sheriff’s Office. Businesses and private persons have catered in lunch, brought in ice cream and offered kind words and shows of caring. The food that has been delivered has been shared with all of our employees, including our brothers & sisters who work the Dispatch Center down the street at COMTEC. Food that was delivered to the Sheriff’s Office has been shared with the Correction’s Deputies who come in, day-in-and-day out and do a difficult job.

Whether it is as small a gesture as a smile or a wave, it all gives the employees a feeling that we are appreciated and that we have supporters in our combined quest to keep our community safe.

On behalf of all of the men and women at the Sheriff’s Office, we wish to extend a heartfelt THANK-YOU for the outpouring of support.

On a lighter note, with the onset of fall, it is time for football and cider-mills. For many grateful parents, it is also time for schools to reopen.

As you are going about your busy days, please keep an eye out for children crossing the roads as they hurry to bus stops. Slow down when approaching school buses, and stop when you see the red-flashing lights.

Let’s all have a safe start to the school year!

On behalf of all the hardworking men and women at the Sheriff’s Office, thank-you for your support and have a wonderful fall season.

Sheriff Anthony M. Wickersham
