Sheriff's Office 2nd Annual Open House
Baxter County Sheriff's Office 2nd Annual Open House
I want to personally invite everyone to the 2nd Annual Open House at the Baxter County Sheriff's Office. The event will be on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 from 4 to 7 pm. The event will be outdoors, in the area between the Administration, Criminal Investigations and Detention Buildings. We ask the public to park at First National Bank on West 6th Street. Shuttle Service is provided.
We would like to thank the Baxter County Sheriff's Foundation and First National Bank for sponsoring this year's open house. This year's event will feature a live band, Crooked Creek, playing from 4 to 6 pm. KTLO Radio will be broadcasting live and will have their Treasure Chest with $1100 dollars in it. Door prizes will also be given away. Grilled hotdogs or ‘jail food' (beans, cornbread and bologna sandwiches) will be provided. Tours of the jail and other buildings will be offered. Much of our equipment will be on display, including the helicopter, patrol and rescue boats, underwater robot and cameras and much more. Deputies will on hand to answer questions.
The event was held last year for the first time and was met with a huge response from the public. In spite of rainy conditions, more than 350 people came to the open house. The event was so well received and generated so much positive feedback; the decision was made to make this an annual event.
We have a first class Sheriff's Office. The men and women who work here are second to none. Please come by and visit with the staff and look at all of the equipment Baxter County is so blessed to have. Take one of the guided tours of the jail and see firsthand how it operates. After all, this is YOUR Sheriff's Office and we would like to show you what you have.
Sheriff John Montgomery
