Christmas Message from the Sheriff


Merry Christmas presents

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

As Christmas approaches and this year comes to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to extend our best wishes for a safe Christmas & New Year from all of us at the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

Here are a few Holiday safety tips:

  • Keep all car doors locked and windows closed while in or out of your car.
  • Don't leave your keys, gifts or valuable items in your vehicle.
  • When approaching or leaving your vehicle, be aware of your surroundings.
  • Do not approach your car alone if there are suspicious people in the area.
  • Teach your child to go to a store clerk and ask for help in case they get lost.
  • Teach children their full name, address and telephone number to give to police officers.
  • Be extra cautious about locking doors and windows when you leave the house.
  • When leaving home for an extended time, have a neighbor or family member watch your house and pick up your newspapers and mail.
  • Be cautious about having expensive items delivered and left on your front porch

It's a real pleasure to say "thank you" to our community as we wish you a Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year, full of happiness and success. It is an honor to serve you and I look forward to many more years of service as your Sheriff.

Please contact my office for assistance.

Thank you,

Sheriff Danny Morrison
