Get right info on sheriff's office
During this election cycle, there are various rumors and misinformation circling around. It appears that a large portion of the misinformation is aimed at your Yuma County Sheriff's Office.
As your sheriff, I am concerned this is bringing discredit upon the organization and the fine men and women who work here and serve this community. No one can stop this type of activity, but any such information can and should be questioned.
I encourage each of you, should you hear a “story” about the sheriff's office that is disconcerting, to please verify the information by visiting our website (www.yumacountysheriff.org) or calling my office (783-4427) so we may set your mind at ease.
Our department is a professional organization, and operations are run accordingly. Don't let wild and unsubstantiated rumors spread by persons with personal agendas influence your good judgment.
As I prepare to retire, I can tell you assuredly that I am proud to be your sheriff and I am proud of our sheriff's office!
Sheriff Ralph E. Ogden
