Sheriff Paul Hays

The election is over and we have winners and losers. If you took time to vote, thank you. You made a difference in the future for our children and grandchildren. You see, what we do today really will effect tomorrow for our kids. It is our democratic system of government that makes us unique in the world. Our right to select the person who will lead us is an exceptional blessing! Most countries do not have this right. God Bless America and congratulations to the winners. Now, let’s come together in the best interest of our country.

Halloween was a great success this year. Hundreds of children yelling Trick Or Treat came through the court house to receive candy from the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, JC Judge Executive Office, and JC Clerk Office and JC Detention Center. It was a great evening and everyone got home safely. Good job!

There is frost on the pumpkins and frost on the windshields. Lately I have seen cars that were not properly defrosted prior to leaving the residence. It is extremely dangerous to try to operate a motor vehicle when the view is obstructed by frost or ice. Take a few minutes to allow your defroster to do its job. You will be much safer on your journey.

We recently received notice that the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office has been awarded a grant from Walmart to purchase new Tasers for our officers. The ones we currently have are in need of replacement. Tasers are a less-than-lethal way to help our officers bring a person into compliance during an arrest. It is used only when necessary and never more times than needed. We appreciate Walmart, who has been an important partner in our efforts to obtain needed equipment at no cost to the county. This grant will provide additional tools for our officers and will protect them from injury as they enforce the law. Thank you Walmart!

Stuff the Cruiser for Christmas. For the past four years the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office has collected new toys, clothes and food for our most needy children. Last year we were able to make Christmas better for over one-hundred and eighty children. We could never do this without the support of people throughout the county, so help us make Christmas better for some needy children. You will get a blessing for it!

Last week the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office responded to forty-five calls for service. We investigated four traffic accidents, opened four criminal cases and arrested three individuals. We appreciate the support and the prayers of our citizens. God Bless
