By Carbon County Sheriff Jeff Wood
I would like to start off this week’s message by congratulating Deputy Chad Marrelli. Chad graduated from the POST law enforcement class last week. We are proud of his accomplishment and expect great things in his future. I would like to also congratulate Deputy Brandon Wilson. Brandon accepted a position in the patrol division. He will go to POST this fall to obtain his law enforcement officer certification. Finally, we would like to welcome to our team Lance Scovill. Lance accepted a position as a corrections deputy and will begin POST next week to obtain his corrections certification.
Sgt. Adams was recognized by the Utah Narcotic Officers Association by receiving a Citation of Honor in recognition of outstanding performance or service that exemplifies the highest tradition of character, honor and integrity in narcotics enforcement. Sgt. Adams is a fine example of the caliber of law enforcement we have here in Carbon County.
Cletis and I had an opportunity to have lunch with the East Carbon seniors. It was a good opportunity to update the seniors on the progress of the sheriff’s office and listen to their concerns in the community. I would like to thank everyone at the East Carbon Senior Citizen Center for all they do for our community.
The sheriff’s office is putting together a jail roster; this is a good opportunity to start a career in law enforcement for those that are interested in such a career.
I wanted to remind everyone that school starts next week. The school zones will be filled with children walking to school and waiting for school buses. I would like everyone to be conscious of our little ones and drive careful, keeping an eye out for the children in these areas. I am proud to be part of this community and honored to be in the position of sheriff. We truly live in a great place.
I would like to remind the community of the importance to have clearly visible house numbers on their house or mailbox. Precious seconds or minutes can be lost when emergency personnel are trying to locate a residence that is not clearly marked.
