Unity Day 2013 Celebrated in Local Schools

Students from Cotter and Mountain Home School Districts showed their support for the National "Unity Day" by spelling out the words Unity Day and wearing Orange.  October is National Bullying Prevention Month and October 9th is when everyone shows their united support by wearing orange. Baxter County Sheriff's Office School Resource Officers helped coordinate some of the events that help the schools remind students that bullying will not be tolerated.  We encourage parents continue with what the schools have started and talk to students about bullying. With their help we can make our schools a happier and safer educational environment.

Friday the 13th has an ominous meaning for some but came as a well-deserved day for Ms. Maryanne Edge as she retires today from the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office.  Maryanne has been with the Sheriff’s Office for 9 years and seen numerous changes in records management and administrative requirements during her time with the administrative division.

Sergeant Tim Phillips retired from the Baxter County Sheriff's Office on Friday, July 26, 2013.  Sergeant Phillips had been in Law Enforcement for 25 years.  Sgt. Phillips served as the Chief of Court Security and Senior Bailiff for the Sheriff's Office.  Tim is credited with being the driving force behind numerous advancements in security for the Court Complex.  Tim was not only a bailiff, he also performed duty as the Assistant Supervisor of the Support Services Division of the Sheriff's Office.  This involved public presentations on Neighborhood Watch and helping maintain and train other agencies on Project Lifesaver.
