As the Sheriff, I want to let you know that I appreciate the time you take to fill out the form regarding compliments on my staff. I am pleased to receive comments about their performance as this is an excellent evaluation tool and an important component in feedback from the community that we serve. I am very proud of my staff as they demonstrate a positive commitment to our community. When we receive your compliment, a copy is given to the deputy and also their supervisors. We also place a copy of your compliment in their personnel folder and it is also posted on our "Deputy Thanks" Bulletin board in our hallway so that the deputies can see how much support the community gives them.
Citizens may call Headquarters to make their initial compliment, community concern or complaint at 410-758-0770.
