Celebrate the Season!


The holiday season is approaching, and we will soon be ringing in a new year.

Every Thanksgiving and Christmas season, we see many people, civic groups and churches working diligently to help others and we applaud their efforts. Please give special thanks to the men and women of our military and law enforcement, for keeping this country safe and free. Without all of these fine professionals and organizations, we could not enjoy much of what life offers.

I’d like to ask that everyone take a few moments each day, and think of something small they could do to make life better for their family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. I understand how wrapped up we can become in our work, projects, and in our daily lives. With all that in mind, I suggest that all of us still take a little time each day to pay a compliment to someone, help a stranger, and do something nice for a family member or co-worker. When we do these things, it is amazing how good that makes us feel inside!

I often remind my children, co-workers, and people I meet, that we cannot change yesterday. We can only change tomorrow. It is the Dale County Sheriff’s Office goal to help others, and with your continued help, we can make a difference.

So on behalf of all the men and women of the Dale County Sheriff’s Office, a big thank you for all the past help and support. We are only as good as the community we serve!

We wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year!!


Sheriff Wally Olson
