Sheriff Fuller gave safety talks to many children on a beautiful bright sunny day. He was accompanied by several Reserve Deputies and an Explorer. The children and adults toured the two Tahoes that we had on site. It was a great event and very well attended!
Search and Rescue Training in Kent County that was held September 20-22, 2013. A great practical learning experience. During the final day of training Officers Balkema and Jokela found the missing person who was armed. Balkema disarmed her without being shot with the air soft weapon that he had when she charged at him. Officer Jokela gave chase to her when she tried to escape and carried her back to the group.
