Foundation receives tax exempt status and body armor vests
The Sheriff’s Foundation was originally formed on September 29, 2009.
The Sheriff’s Foundation and Sheriff's Office are also announcing that the body armor on order for five (5) female Sheriff’s Deputies has been received from the vendor and is now being worn by the deputies. The purchase of these body armor vests was made possible from several donations made to the Sheriff’s Foundation for that specific purpose.
Both the Sheriff’s Foundation and Sheriff’s Office wish to sincerely express their thanks and gratitude to the public for its continued support for both organizations, and for helping to provide for the safety of the officers.
