I feel really good today. In fact, I feel so good that I want to share the reason why I feel this way. The reasons are that on Oct. 1, our camp on De Queen Lake was burglarized, our alarm system worked, and the intruders were arrested within minutes.
My wife and I were 200 miles way in Pine Bluff when we received a call from our security providers, ADT. An intruder had just triggered an alarm at our camp. My wife asked them to notify the Sevier County Sheriff's Department. Personnel from that department responded and within minutes, had an intruder in custody.
In this case, everything worked as it should. And, I understand that some cases may never be resolved, but this one was, and I am pleased.
What impressed me most was the professionalism that I saw in the entire sheriff's department. I do not know these people; but I know when I see professionalism, and these people meet that standard.
You and I, the people, are fortunate. Thank you, Sevier County Sheriff's Department.
