“Police officers take risks and secure the safety of fellow citizens, and they endure such risks and tolerate such inconveniences on behalf of strangers. Consequently, police work is one of the more noble and selfless occupations in society. Making a difference in the quality of life is an opportunity that policing provides-and few other professions can offer.”
- International Association of Chiefs of Police
During these challenging times of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic both professionally and personally, the Sheriff’s Office would like to remind all staff that the emotional well-being of you and your immediate family members is a top priority. We want to remind everyone that Employee Assistance is encouraged and always available through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), Affiliated Psychological Services, and the Sheriff’s Office Peer Support team.
