The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office participated in No Shave November. A total of nine officers took part in the event and we raised $900. Proceeds from this event were used to buy gifts for Operation Blue Santa. These gifts will be distributed to children in need in Shelby County.
On December 4th, our office participated in the annual Santa’s Christmas Parade in Center. We took home third place in the civic organization. We would like to thank the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce for hosting this event each year.
Patrol deputies are continuing security checks at businesses and churches during their shifts. If you notice a red door hanger, this is our way of letting you know that we have stopped by and checked the property. I also want to remind our citizens of our house check program. If you plan on being out of town for a period of time, our deputies can check your property until you return. Stop by our office, fill out a form and we will take care of the rest.
