Over the past months we have seen a constant barrage of accusations against law enforcement from the media, politicians and certain activists in this country. Sadly, some officers and deputies have died as a result of this ugly atmosphere.
For the deputies in the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office this has been sometimes disheartening to see. However, having said that, I must also say that deputies in the Sheriff’s Office have been overwhelmed by the support shown to them from Culpeper residents. Our office has been filled with cards and food from individuals, churches and businesses. It is hard to express how important each and every one of those cards and expressions of support have meant to me and to my deputies.
I hesitate to mention anyone or any organization separately for fear of leaving someone out—so I won’t. But I wanted to let the community know how much I appreciate their support — thank you.
And on behalf of the deputies at the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office, I thank Culpeper residents for their outpouring of goodwill towards law enforcement. It is a good thing to see.
