As we embark upon a new year and the halfway mark to my leadership as Jefferson County Sheriff, I’m eager and ready to roll-out new initiatives to continue protecting all the great citizens that call Jefferson County home. The past 2 years have allowed us to implement the Renewed for Re-Entry Program focused on decreasing repeat criminals, the Kickstart Your Day with Sheriff Mark Pettway Program allowing us to provide students participating in virtual learning with the proper food to focus on their studies, and the Citizens Training Academy allowing citizens to learn more about ways that they can protect them and their families. These are just a few of the programs we’ve consistently worked at year-round to be more than just a public safety office, but instead a partner in the community. In 2021 we look forward to growing that relationship that we’ve established as a community partner and we’re encouraged that the new year will be a safe and productive year for Jefferson County as a whole.
