What a great place Johnson County is! Those are my thoughts every morning when I get to work but the last few weeks have been filled with extra blessings it seems.
The outpouring of love and support that we have been shown is nothing short of humbling. Folks have been coming and going from the office with food for the staff, and numerous organizations and individuals have brought presents for families that might otherwise not have been able to have a Christmas.
On top of that, all the calls, cards, texts and just hearty Merry Christmas's have made this first Christmas as your Sheriff very rewarding.
Thank you seems like such a small word compared to all the love and care that we have been shown, but please know how much we appreciate each and every kind gesture.
My hope as we close 2015 is that we always remember the reason for the season and if you think of it, say an extra prayer for all of our law enforcement workers, firefighters, military, first responders and emergency medical professionals.
Please accept my heartfelt appreciation for allowing me to serve as YOUR Sheriff, I truly believe there is no better job.
From our family to yours, we hope you have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A SAFE AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.
Sheriff Larry Jones
