The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office held its annual meeting Thursday afternoon, February 2, 2012, at the Bethel Church in Napavine. The office has been holding annual meetings to recognize employee service and talk about goals and objectives for the year ahead, for the past 17 years.
It is so important to take time to honor and recognize those in my office and in our community that are dedicated and work so hard in helping achieve our mission. It is also an opportunity to reflect and honor those who have served in the law enforcement profession. Lewis County is a safer place to work, live, and raise our families in large part because of our dedicated and outstanding commitment, performance, and actions of our employees and citizens. - Sheriff Steve Mansfield
