The Prentiss County Sheriff's Office recently co-sponsored an Enduro Race Team at the West Memphis Speedway.  On Nov. 10th Four Prentiss County Sheriff's Deputies participated in a 200 lap Endurance Race.  The rules stated that the vehicle had to be a street drivable stock automobile, car or truck.  Two door car could have 2 passengers and 4 door cars could have 3 passengers and the driver.  Our team consisted of Driver Reed Sparks and passengers Derrick Pruitt, Derrick Hester and Joey Clark.  Our team placed fourth in the first one hundred laps netting $100 prize.  We started the second one hundred laps in the fourth pole position, but was knocked out of the race after 40 additional laps after being sandwiched between two other cars and then rear ended.  We plan on returning to the Dec. 15th Day Race if we can get the car back in shape.

 

 The Prentiss County Sheriff's Office celebrated the Graduation of the Jumertown DARE Class, Mrs. Roberts Class Weds. May 16th.  We rewarded the students for doing such a great job by having a Pizza Party with Pizza compliments of the Pizza Inn.  Several Students recieved awards for Best Essay and then Mascot Award.  Thanks goes out to the Jumpertown Officals and Mrs Roberts for being so kind to allow us to teach this worthy program.  Officers attending the celebration were Sheriff Randy M Tolar, Chief Deputy Derrick Pruitt, DARE instructor Sammy Henderson and Deputy Bob Tolar.  The Award winners were Best Overall Bethany Marshal, Top 2 Essays Kloey Essary and Braxton Ross and the Mascot Award went to Austin Burcham.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     Today,05/08/2012 we returned four picnic tables to the Hills Chapel School that were in disrepair and had been refurbished by the inmates at The Prentiss County Work Center.  We were at Hills Chapel School a week or so ago for the DARE Graduation and noticed several of the picnic tables were in bad shape.  I asked Mr Marshal if he would let us come and get the tables and allow our inmates to fix them.  The inmates did an outstanding job and are to be commended.  The photo is an example of one of the four tables.

    A main goal of the Prentiss County Sheriff's Office is to be a Community Oriented Policing Agency, working within every community implementing programs and projects that make our communities safer, by encouraging citizen participation.

The Prentiss County Drug Awareness Project is a program that was started in mid 2000.  Members of the Sheriff's Office, DARE Program and former Drug Users go into Churches, Civic  Organizations and other gatherings of people, educating them (on hands) about drugs, the effects of drugs and what to look for in our children's behavior that might be indicators that there is a drug problem.

The Prentiss County Sheriff's Office has been instrumental in linking Substance Abusers with rehabilitation services and programs in an effort to reduce the recidivism rate.  A frequently used Rehabilitative Service is located in Tuscumbia Alabama called Restoration Ranch.  The Sheriff has assisted numerous families find help for their loved ones at facilities such as this one.  Restoration Ranch is a 10-12 month long Faith based treatment program.  Restorartion Ranch is a division of Mission teen, Inc. www.missionteens.com , telephone 256-381-0930. with several other facilities under different names across the Southeast United States.

There is no charge for any part of the program.  However, transportation fees will be charged for trips to the doctor, court, etc.  And thse are the responsibility of the person for whom the service is rendered.

If your church or civic organization would like people from the center to come and speak, or give testimony, simply call 256-381-0930 and we would be more than happy to arrange a visit.

Prentiss County is now the hub of a very successful Drug Court.  The Drug Court is an alternative to Prison, focusing on the addiction and changing lives.  Circuit Judge Jim Pounds oversees the Drug Court along with his staff.
