As the end of the year and holidays approach, I would like to express my gratitude towards my staff and community. It is a privilege to serve as the Sheriff of Vernon County. I am honored to lead a team of dedicated, professional Deputies and Administrative Staff who work daily to protect and serve the place we call home. We take great pride in serving our community, where neighbors help neighbors, and where we rely on each other to uphold the principles of kindness and respect for others.
We ask that while visiting family for the holidays, you keep safety in the forefront of your minds. We want everyone to make it home for the holidays.
If you do decide to travel, keep the following safety tips in mind:
- Buckle your seatbelt always.
- Don't drink and drive - even one alcoholic drink can reduce your abilities and impair your judgment.
- Keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel - eating, changing music stations, and digging for items in the floorboard or back seat can lead to trouble. Instead, pull over and take a break.
- Be courteous - because of the volume of vehicles on the road, you're bound to run into a few traffic jams, be cut off, or be forced to stop short - remain calm and courteous - don't let other drivers ruin your holidays
Have a safe, happy & healthy holiday season.
Sheriff Jason Mosher
