What's New in County 22 - March 2015

This month’s article was written by K-9 Deputy Matt Moser.

First I would like to say thank you for all the support that was given to my family and the Sheriff’s Office in the passing of retired K-9 Bear.  Your support was truly amazing.

I asked the Sheriff if I could write this month’s article to give everyone a little information on the Sheriff’s Office new K-9, Raven, and some of the things we have been doing since May of 2014.
