In observance of National Peace Officer Memorial Day all flags should be lowered to half- staff on May 15th from sunrise to sunset. In the aftermath of last Saturday's line of duty death of Sgt. Kelvin Ansari of the Savannah Police Department, Governor Kemp may order the flags remain lowered until the conclusion of Sgt. Ansari's funeral. Please pray for his family and friends and his brothers and sisters at Savannah P.D.
Last year one hundred sixty three Peace Officers lost their lives in the line of duty. . To date this year 42 have been killed.
It is our prayer that the citizens of our county and state know and understand the daily sacrifices made by our officers and is equally as important to remember those who have made the "ultimate sacrifice"
Thanks and God Bless,
Sheriff John G. Carter
