 Follow-up to Wed., Feb 24th.  -  Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr.

 
We had a fine discussion by Sheriff Scott Nichols on the duties, calls for service and multiple programs the Franklin County Office of the Sheriff provides to citizens of the County. There are many component parts to the duties of this agency including field patrol, investigations, assisting other police, the Jail, the Communications Center and the work office staff provide. The FCSO is active in the towns of Franklin County, working to reduce crime, assist citizens, and face a growing statewide substance abuse problem. Well done Sheriff and we appreciate the opportunity to learn more of the FCSO.
