Sheriff's Office to Provide Educational Materials, Giveaways and Emergency Alert Info at the HRC Fair - 07/19/15
ODELL, Ore. - The Hood River County Sheriff's Office has been preparing for the county fair for months. This is one of the largest public outreach opportunities for the Sheriff's Office every year. The fair begins on Wednesday, July 22 and runs through Saturday, July 25. The Sheriff's Office, along with local Fire/EMS agencies provide the public safety component for the fair annually.
The office provides hands on access to personnel, educational material, and giveaways for all ages. This year, the public will get a chance to talk with representatives from the Enforcement, 911, Parole and Probation, and Emergency Management Divisions.
The HRCSO will have patrol vehicles on display daily. People are welcome to look through the vehicles, take photos and learn about the importance of the equipment deputies use daily to provide public safety services to Hood River County. Additionally, the office will provide fairgoers with an opportunity to meet "Luke", the Sheriff's Office Narcotics Detection K-9.
Sheriff's Office Personnel will once again be promoting citizen opt-in for the free, countywide, Emergency Alert System. Stop by the Sheriff's Office booth to learn how to sign up for this invaluable free service.
The Sheriff's Office wishes everyone a safe and fun week at the Hood River County Fair and looks forward to the opportunity to show the public the programs their Sheriff's Office provides.
