Letter of support from Sheriff Shane Nelson
“Commissioner Adair thank you for your ongoing support of public support safety and our Sheriff’s Office. Patti, you have been a great partner to the Sheriff’s Office as we continue investing in ways to increase our proactivity as a law enforcement agency and enhance livability.
Your vote to support our employee’s contract, and our annual budget with prior tax cuts, helps us recruit for and retain quality professionals to serve our community in a time here law enforcement agencies are having a difficult time filling position. This ensure we have a fully funded office so we can continue to provide excellent public safety and customer service.
Thank you for being a partner in addressing ways to mitigate homelessness and protect the rights of residents and property owners. It is important to support resources for addiction, mental health, and homelessness so that individuals have a path to improve their lives. It is equally important to support the enforcement of the law to guide those individuals to use resources or hold them accountable if they choose not to obey the law.
Your continued support of the office and public safety is valued. Your ongoing support of the Stabilization Center continues to help keep individuals out of the criminal justice system when appropriate, offering them opportunities to overcome addiction and mental health challenges that will help them improve their lives and reduce contacts with law enforcement.
Sometimes as elected officials we may not hear about the thanks for great partnerships. Thank you for your partnership and ongoing support of public safety.”
