Tracy has proudly served with our agency for almost 25 years and is currently assigned to our Human Resource Unit.

As part of our “Sheriff For A Day” program, Tracy accompanied me through out the day while I attended numerous meetings in the morning, participated in the filming of a Public Service Announcement, took part in a presentation to employees at KSC on Self Defense Through Mental Preparedness, and then attended several more meetings on different topics in the afternoon.

The concept of the program is to share the experience of serving as Sheriff with our employees who then have an opportunity to see first hand how the various components of our agency operate on a day to day basis and decisions are made that impact our agency and employees.

Please join me in congratulating Tracy for serving as “Sheriff For A Day” and also for her many dedicated years of service to our agency.
