The association is an organization composed of concerned private citizens and law enforcement officers.  Our mission is to help the sheriff’s department and promote better relations between officers and private citizens.  We have monthly meetings where we discuss the needs of the department as well as the county.

The spring fund raiser is primarily to generate money to purchase needed equipment for the department.  However last year, due to the generosity of our contributions, we met the needs of the department and were able to give two scholarships to Mineral Area College.

We are proud of our organization and the citizens of the county. If you would like to become a member please contact me, I would love to talk with you. It’s a privilege to serve you and our community.

Thanks to the efforts of the Sheriff’s Association and members of the community over $10,000 was raised toward the purchase of bullet proof vests for the officers of our department. The association has also purchased GPS units to assist officers in search and rescue.
