Sheriffs Call For Congressional Action on Immigration

Sheriffs Call For Congressional Action on Immigration

Apr 10, 2018

Sheriff Brad Cole wants the legal residents of Christian County to be kept safe from illegal immigrants who are involved in criminal activity and has recently joined with sheriff’s from across the country in a call for action. Below is the March 26th, 2018 press release from the National Sheriff’s Association and a link to the letter sent to the Members of Congress.

“Sheriffs from around the country sent a letter to all Members of Congress outlining the need for congressional action on securing America’s border. The letter, signed by over 310 sheriffs representing 40 states. was spearheaded by Sheriff Thomas Hodgson from Bristol County, Massachusetts.

“We’re calling on Congress to take action now, on the security issues at the border and against sanctuary policies in our states, cities, and towns. These sanctuary policies directly undermine and limit cooperation and collaboration between local, state and federal law enforcement, making it harder for America’s sheriffs to protect our citizens and legal residents,” said Sheriff Hodgson.

“Congress’ inaction undermines sheriffs’ ability to protect our citizens. Sheriffs across this country have signed this letter because Congress cannot continue to weaken our efforts to make our communities as safe as possible,” National Sheriffs’ Association Executive and CEO Jonathan Thompson said.”

The letter and list of sheriffs can be found here.

2016 Christmas Message From Sheriff Brad Cole

2016 Christmas Message From Sheriff Brad Cole

Dec 23, 2016

Friends,

The holiday season is upon us and with it brings opportunities to create memories we will cherish for years to come. I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the men and women who have worked tirelessly over the course of the last 16 months to provide the best services to our wonderful community. We have employed some of the most dedicated Deputies and administrative staff in the history of this office. Collectively, we have been able to achieve so much, and they all deserve our utmost appreciation.

I’d also like to thank many members of our community. The county’s emergency response team (CERT), has volunteered countless hours to provide support during some of our most critical incidents. Students from our inaugural Sheriff’s Office Citizen’s Academy, who continue to actively assist the Sheriff’s Office in whatever capacity they can. A very special thanks to all of the men and women who have supported law enforcement across the country during a time when it may not be socially acceptable to do so.  Thank you all!

In the coming days, many of us will be spending time with our loved ones for the holidays. I challenge everyone to help keep our roadways safe for those traveling through our county. Please, buckle up and remember to drink responsibly. Deputies will be covering many of our more frequently traveled roads to ensure safe travels for all motorists, but should you encounter an unsafe driver, report it.

It is the mission of the Christian County Sheriff’s Office to protect the people we serve. We can only do this with the help of my Deputies and the citizens we serve. On behalf of everyone at the Christian County Sheriff’s Office, have a safe and happy holiday season! Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and God bless you all!

 

Sincerely,

 

Sheriff Brad Cole
