Sheriff Judd Announces Creation of Sheriff's Advisory Council	

Sheriff Grady Judd is creating a Sheriff’s Advisory Council. Sheriff Judd explains the reason for this council: “Based on feedback I received after meeting with a cross-section of Polk County during my campaign, I pledged to create a Sheriff’s Advisory Council. I am a firm believer in working together with the community to increase the quality of life in Polk County.  What better way to do this than to listen to their needs and concerns?”

The council will consist of 20 members, five from each quadrant of Polk County, who will serve voluntarily and meet quarterly with Sheriff Judd.  Participants will be required to attend an all-day orientation session, and one evening meeting every quarter thereafter. These meetings will be held at various locations throughout the county. Council members will be encouraged to provide feedback on topical issues concerning law enforcement and detention services in Polk County. 

Residents of Polk County over the age of 18 are encouraged to apply. If you are interested in serving on the Sheriff’s Advisory Council, please call our Human Resources office at (863) 535-1900, by March 7, 2005, to request an application. Specific dates of the meetings will be included in the application packet.
