The Chairman of Community Quilts Jo Ann Moore met with Captain Jeff Lewis and Lieutenant Ralph Bird at the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office to provide a new supply of quilts for Sheriff’s Deputies. Community Quilts has provided comfort quilts to the Sheriff’s Office for a number of years.  Deputies give them out to individuals that they are assisting when coping with a stressful situation.

The Sheriff’s Staff and Deputies would like to thank all the ladies that devote their time and talent to providing these quilts to our office. You can see the difference they make when you look into the eyes of a young person that receives one.

Deputy Cox was recognized during the 114th Congressional Session by Senator John Boozman. Senator Boozman stated during the second session,

"I rise today to pay tribute to the Baxter County Sheriff's Deputy Billy Cox, the American Legion Department of Arkansas Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award recipient.

  Deputy Cox has dedicated 13 years to Law Enforcement and currently serves as the Norfork School Resource Officer.He provides a law enforcement presence, but also uses his skills and experiences to help students learn and grow in a safe environment through D.A.R.E. and other youth safety programs. Having worked as a Paramedic for two decades, he also teaches CPR to high school students.

Known as "Officer Billy" to the students and educators around the Norfork School District, Deputy Cox is a positive role model for the students. Students rely on him to listen to their problems and he is always patient and willing to listen.  Norfork High School Principal Bobby Hulse says Deputy Cox means a lot to the students and staff.

His dedication to Law Enforcement has earned Deputy Cox certifications in drug abuse education and gang resistance education. He is a state-certified Drug Recognition Expert.

The American Legion Department of Arkansas Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award recognizes Law Enforcement Officers who exceed their responsibilities in uniform and show a commitment to community service.  Deputy Cox was nominated for this award by his supervisor, Lt. Ralph Bird because of the huge impact he's had on students and the citizens in the county.

Deputy Cox is well-deserving of this recognition. His dedication, devotion and commitment to Baxter County and Norfork School District are apparent every day.

I offer my congratulations to Deputy Cox for receiving this honor and wish him continued success in his law enforcement career".

The Baxter County Sheriff's Office is proud of Deputy Cox and appreciative to Senator John Boozman for recognizing him during the 114th Congressional second session.
