Community Continues to Fund K-9 Program
Sheriff Casey Salisbury hosted speaker, Scot Thomasson, Founder and CEO of Thomasson Global Consultants, and co-founder of Thomasson Dacus LLC, at the monthly Sheriff’s Breakfast held at the Little Creek Casino. Sheriff Salisbury also presented plaques to Bert Fischer representing Our Community Credit Union and Kevin Swett for their support of the Mason County Sheriff’s Office K-9 program as well as Chaplain George Albertson recognizing his years as lead Chaplain for the Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Casey Salisbury said, “Our K-9 program is vital to providing safe, effective law enforcement in our county. The care and tools for these K-9s are funded almost entirely by community donations and our program would cease to exist without these partnerships.”
Mr. Thommasson gave a presentation about Intelligence Led Policing and cited case examples from across the United States where partnered resources were used to identify, investigate, infiltrate, and incarcerate guilty individuals.
Sheriff Casey Salisbury presented a plaque to George Albertson recognizing his years of service as the lead of the Chaplains Corp. Albertson is retiring after 11 years; however, he still plans on maintaining a close relationship with the Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Salisbury also presented plaques of recognition to Bert Fischer representing Our Community Credit Union and Mason County resident Kevin Swett for their support of the Sheriff’s Office K-9 program. All of the K-9s and their handlers were present at the breakfast to personally thank Fischer and Swett for their contributions.
The monthly Law Enforcement Breakfast draws together first responders from multiple agencies in the region including fire, medical, legal, and law enforcement personnel as well as retirees and public-minded citizens. Keynote speakers are invited to address topics affecting communities, public service, and current trends.
