Chamber of Commerce Leadership Day

The annual Chamber of Commerce Leadership Day was recently held at the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office.  Community leaders were given the opportunity to spend the day with different divisions in the Sheriff’s Office.   They were able to see the Detention Center, Aviation Section, and Administrative offices.  Attendees got some hands-on experience at the pistol range, worked a crime scene, saw firsthand the effects of driving while intoxicated and ate jail inmate food for lunch.
