Thankful for good service by sheriff’s staff

Recently we had a theft. Deciding it was the right thing to do, we contacted our Lee County Sheriff’s Department.

Most of us never realize how important this support is that we have at our disposal. An officer came, collected all the information, and proceeded with it. We were fortunate enough to recover most of what was taken. We live day to day not thinking about this invisible shield that protects us.

There are so many times that we hear about what goes wrong. But today, I am choosing to commend Officer Kyle Kellen, the detectives, and our Lee County Sheriff’s Department for the good service they provided for us. Thank you.
