    "Jefferson County Sheriff's Office is the only agency I wanted to call home. I saw it in the faces of the people who worked here. This wasn't just a loose-knit group of police officers, this was a law enforcement family bound by tradition, self-sacrifice and a commitment to each other. I heard it in the voices of citizens I talked to. With no other agency did I experience this synergy between the community and its law enforcement personnel. When I sensed this communal desire to build better communities, I knew that there was only one place I could make my law enforcement dreams come true: the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. And I haven't regretted it a single day since," -Deputy Jerome
