Members of the Boys and Girls Club stopped by to chat with Sheriff Adkinson on Thursday to express their appreciation for his dedication to the field of law enforcement, and to the young people in the community. He was presented with a thank you card by the organization and those visiting had their photo made with the top law enforcement officer in the county. Sheriff Adkinson then invited his guests to take a tour of the Agency and get a behind the scenes look into a day in the life of a WCSO employee.
National Police Week originally started as National Peace Officers Memorial Day (May 15th) back in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy. The event is celebrated during the week of May 12th to May 18th and is a collaborative effort of many agencies and organizations to show support for the law enforcement community. If you haven’t already, thank a police officer, deputy sheriff, state trooper or any other member of the law enforcement community for the service they provide to our citizens.
