Well, the new sheriff, David Simon is getting ready to begin a project and he is asking for the public's help.
Simon wants to create a wall inside the sheriff's office that is dedicated to the memories of those law enforcement officers who are no longer with us.
Now, he said it wouldn't be a "memorial," but more of a recognition type thing.
What he wants is for people to contact him if they have had a family member in local law enforcement and they have passed on.
I think this is a wonderful idea. It will help bring a distinguished look to the sheriff's office and pay tribute to those who worked in public service.
If you had a relative, who is now deceased, and they were once a law enforcement officer then contact Simon.
Now, they didn't have to die in the line of duty, but just served as law enforcement.
He not only wants county police officers but any state trooper, deputy jailer, or Leitchfield city officer who served.
Simon wants to get a photograph of each person who served along with the years they were active in law enforcement.
It is a great thing to honor those who have come before you.
A record number of people showed up when Jailer Joey Stanton revealed his memorial for all the past jailers.
It's things like these that keep people in a positive mind-set. It gives them something good to talk about while in that line at the grocery.
So I am asking that you please help Simon in his effort to pay tribute to all those who came before him.
If you have any questions you can contact David Simon or any of his staff at the sheriff's office at 259-9635.
After talking with Simon last week I can assure you that he has great plans in the works.
He even has an idea to get the local school children involved, but more about that when it comes to pass.
