To the editor:
I would like to publicly thank the Jasper County Board of Supervisors — Joe Brock, Denny Carpenter and Denny Stevenson — for approving the resolution to hire three deputies at the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office.
Several months ago, Sheriff John Halferty came to the board with documentation, showing a need to add more deputies. You listened, looked at the facts and made a decision based on what is best for the citizens of Jasper County. Choosing to add more deputies is one that will be beneficial to the citizens of this county and will enhance the safety of all law enforcement officers within Jasper County. On behalf of the deputies at the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office and our families, we thank you.
