Next week is Law Enforcement Week. Cache County Sheriff Chad Jensen told the members of the Cache County Council Tuesday night that numerous activities will honor those who risk their lives every day in an effort to keep people and communities safe.
The Sheriff’s Honor Guard participated in the opening of the meeting. Sheriff Jensen just returned from meetings in Denver, Colorado and said the others who attended were from departments of all size, from three people to 2500 or more.
“It’s amazing the brotherhood among all law enforcement, and not just here in our valley,” Sheriff Jensen told the council. “We all share the same concerns, I guess, crimes on the rise, different things with sentencing, justice reinvestment.
“What doesn’t change is the desire and affect each one of those sheriffs have all across the country. They’re all looking for the same thing, striving for the same thing that we do here in Cache Valley.”
Sheriff Jensen said it is true that law enforcement officers have to deal with many negative things, but they see more that is positive every day. He believes that is because they feel such strong support from the community.
