A Look Into the Lives of Police Officers
A local sheriff’s office is bringing awareness to the everyday life of its officers. Leadership Calhoun County held a Law and Justice Day so participants could gain a greater understanding of the judicial system, increase appreciation for those employed in these fields and to learn what law enforcement officers go through. Participants got to experience a K-9 demonstration, view a court room trial, take a tour of the facility and enjoy a jail lunch. Calhoun County Sheriff Matthew Wade wants everyone to know the law is on their side. Sheriff Wade also says that this day is a reminder for the public to realize that law enforcement officers are people too. Participants got to ask questions and view, first hand, some of the difficulties that come with the job.
