MERRY CHRISTMAS !!

 

Home for the Holidays

 

As the holiday season approaches, I want to personally take this time to acknowledge our staff and thank them for their important contribution to this office and our community. I want to thank each and every one of our deputies and civilian staff for their hard work and encourage you to do the same when you see them.

 

Their hard work and dedication to our office and our community is something we are all very thankful for - not just during the holiday season, but all year-round. It has been a particularly difficult year for everyone, and we believe it is very important to show our appreciation to those around us and especially to all essential workers.

 

I would also like to acknowledge our community for their tremendous support and efforts in helping make our area a safer place to live and raise a family. We appreciate your input and assistance and are happy to know our website is an important information resource to so many of you.

 

When considering traveling home for the holidays, please keep in mind that COVID-19 is still existent in the world and in our community. If you are traveling, please remember to wash your hands frequently, avoid close contact with others, and wear a cloth face covering in public. For more information on how to remain safe during your travels, read this CDC article: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/travel-during-covid19.html

 

As the CDC states, "staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19." With the latest technology, you can always see your family and friends for the holidays via video chat, while remaining safely in your own homes.

 

If you do decide to travel, keep the following safety tips in mind:

 

-          Buckle your seatbelt always.

-          Don't drink and drive - even one alcoholic drink can reduce your abilities and impair your judgment.

-          Keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel - Using your cellphone, eating, changing music stations, and digging for items in the floorboard or back seat can lead to trouble. Instead, pull over and take a break.

-          Be courteous - because of the volume of vehicles on the road, you're bound to run into a few traffic jams, be cut off, or be forced to stop short - remain calm and courteous - don't let other drivers ruin your holidays

 

Have a safe, happy & healthy holiday season.

 

Sheriff Douglas L. Hebert, III
