SHERIFF COTTONS EMPHASIS ON TEEN DRINKING, TEXTING, AND DRUG USE

Sheriff Cotton is seeking to bring emphasis on teen drinking and driving and teen drug use. Pike county is in the top five counties in Mississippi with the highest fatality rate for teen drunk driving.  Sheriff Cotton is launching a drive that will educate and mentor 10-12 graders at all area high schools on the dangers and consequences of driving while intoxicated.  Sheriff Cottons drive at the high schools involved hands on training with the state Youth Highway Safety person, Tawni Basten, local high school guidance counselors, and Pike County Sheriff Office Resource Officer Shanks.  Sheriff Cotton welcomes any organization that wishes to educate teens on these dangers.img_1005

PIKE COUNTY SHERIFF FUNDRAISER FOR K-9 UNIT

Dear Friend of Law Enforcement,

I have served you for 12 months in “your Sheriff’s Office.” The Sheriff’s Office has many needs however, some are critical.  We need your help to raise money to purchase needed safety and training equipment for our K-9 unit.  Our Unit needs a vest for the canine as well as other tactical gear for both herself and her canine. They also need to modify an existing vehicle to accommodate our K-9 with an American aluminum K-9 container. Our Unit needs these items in preparation to preserve, to save, and to safeguard lives, businesses, and properties of Pike County citizens.  The price of these items would otherwise make it nearly impossible for the K-9 Unit to obtain without the generosity and commitment of our benevolent friends of Law Enforcement.

The Pike County Sheriff’s Donation Fund serves a vital role – connecting private investment dollars with effective public safety solutions.  The Pike County Sheriff’s Donation Fund is engaged in an effort to leverage private resources to fund high priority law enforcement needs.  The Pike County Sheriff’s Donation Fund is instrumental is equipping the department’s specialized units with the necessary gear and weapons essential for a safe and successful resolution to the threat situations.

Pike County Sheriff’s Deputies are able to perform their duties much more effectively and safer because of the equipment purchased by the donations provided.  And for that, we are very grateful.  No donation amount is too small or too large!  Any donation will be deeply appreciated.
