During the past few weeks, the Heard County Sheriff’s Office has received an outpouring of support, thanks and appreciation from citizens and organizations, both local and out of town.

On behalf of myself and Heard County deputies, I would like to send a special heartfelt thank you to the following:

Fairplay Horses who held an event at the heard county arena in support and recognition of local law enforcement. Deputies were provided lunch and a handmade/sewn blue line flag was provided to Deputy Dalton Pate.

Rhonda Buchanan and the Hands of Grace Ladies Ministries with Ridgeway Baptist Church who provided deputies with an officer’s survival kit which included snacks.

Girl Scout Troop #13324 who presented girl scout cookies and a hand made framed thank you to the deputies.

Terrie Sikes and family with the Beautifully Designed Ministry in honor of ‘Back the Blue’ day who presented goody/snack bags and drinks to us.

Henry and Dottie Jameson for the basket of snacks.

A citizen and victim of a recent domestic violence incident who presented Deputy Brandon Wiggins with a handmade wooden plaque.

The gentleman who was from out of town who took time to pray for Deputy Brandon Wiggins and other law enforcement officers, while on the side of the highway during a traffic stop.

Craig and Janet Brazeal from Missouri for their card and kind words.

The gentleman from New York who took time to call me and thank me for the way he was treated during a recent traffic stop by a Heard County deputy when he was passing through our county.

Pastor Robert Doddridge, Ms. Laverne Franklin and new covenant worship center for the recent voices in unity for the community event.

I’d also like to thank those of you who have stopped my deputies in passing and thanked them for their service. These two words, “thank you,” mean more to deputies now than ever before.

I am so very blessed, humbled and thankful to live and serve as sheriff in a community where its citizens support their local law enforcement agencies and treat us with kindness and respect.

Words cannot express how much we appreciate the prayers, cards, kind words, gifts and treats we have received from you.

Please know that my deputies, staff and I are here to assist you in any way possible.

Again, thank you all so very much!

Your Sheriff,

Ross Henry
