As the holiday season approaches, I am reminded how fortunate I am to serve with such an outstanding group of people.  The Lawrence County Sheriff's Deputies and the support staff are dedicated, hard-working, and committed to serving the citizens of our County.  These men and women lay their lives on the line every day.  I encourage you to give them a friendly smile or a kind word to let them know you appreciate them as much as I do.  I am truly fortunate to have them by my side.

I am also fortunate to have a wonderful family and great friends to support me.  I appreciate their patience and understanding for all the times I'm called out in the middle of dinner or the middle of the night.  Their support means more than I could every express.

Most of all, I would like to extend my sincere thanks the the residents of Lawrence County.  It is your efforts, working together, that make our County a great place to live and work.  I am thankful for the assistance you have provided through the hotline, website, and in person.  I sincerely appreciate your commitment to the safety of our community.  The support you have shown to me and the Sheriff's Office during 2011 has been overwhelming.  Thank you.

I look forward to 2012 with optimism.  My commitment to the citizens of this County has never been stronger.  I will work with you to improve the quality of life for each resident we serve.

Happy Holidays!

Sheriff Brad A. DeLay
