Sheriff tells of duties, responsibilities



Sheriff Mark More recounted his involvement with law enforcement for the Washington Rotary Club, stating that he started in the field in 1974. He related that an early lesson continues as his trademark for Wilkes County – to be accessible and to focus on training as well as community involvement. Each Sheriff’s Office employee is required to attend many hours of training annually to improve their understanding of this necessary responsibility. The sheriff explained that at one time, breaking and entering was a common issue in Wilkes County, but now removal of high value, unguarded items is more common. He urged anyone to notify his office if they encounter any situation that does not seem normal or right. Jerry Stover was program host for the meeting.
