WASHINGTON COUNTY - Today marks the National Day of Encouragement, which fittingly follows the wake of Hurricane Irma and extended shifts, away from their families, for our first responders.

There is nothing more encouraging than love. Love is the reason Washington County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) deputies and personnel make critical sacrifices every day to protect and serve our county.

Encourage others. Support and uplift others. Strive to make a greater impact in the lives of others.
