Our prayers and thoughts go out to the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office and the family and friends of Deputy Bill Smith. Deputy Smith passed away while rescuing a swimmer in distress on Fort Morgan Road. Another deputy also entered the water in an attempt to rescue the individuals as well. That deputy was transported to a hospital and is going to be OK. All of the swimmers (3) who were in distress are being treated. Deputy Smith was a seven year veteran of the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office. He graduated from the JCSO Academy in 2012.

Dear Deputies, You surely have seen me around here in Jefferson county for around twenty five years now. Mostly working as a Security Officer. I have the weirdest thing happen to me. Now technically I am a only child. I have a foster sister I believe in Greensboro Alabama if she moved from Detroit Michigan to take over the homestead down there. I really truly don't know who my father is. Many people have came to me at bank branches to tell me they seen me somewhere else and they asked me do I have a twin working for the same security company or do the company have a rule that everyone has to look a like. Two credible witnesses a branch manager named James Crawford and a First Lieutenant in 316th Chem told me he saw my twin. James said the Mans name was Chris Williams. I don't know nobody by that name. I suspect this guy know me and have been on my case for a long time. I want a clear look at his face. I want to know if he has been messing with my life behind my back. It is likely an open secret here in Jefferson county. I am told Chris is clearly older than me with bad teeth. I want to expose this situation and maybe have a laugh at his expense for a change. People who know us say I look like my mother firstly I think daddy but this could be someone on my dead mother's side.but her name was Pearlie Mae Lee her dad went by El D. I want this inside joke to be on that other guy.
Happy Fourth of July to my mama, my daddy and Linda !!! I had a lot to say to y’all today as I put your flowers on your graves !!! I’m so disappointed ! I guess I should have expected a promise for you Linda to not be kept ! I’m sorry !! Par for the course ! Love y’all !
Is there a cut off time tonight for shooting fireworks ? I understand some people like shooting them but we have elderly on our street (including me) and I don’t want to hear them all night long ! I thought it was 10:00pm. If it is do you enforce it ? Thanks for any answers !
Can someone confirm or deny this Facebook rumor?
I just wanted to say "Thank You for your service!" to all of the officers of the Jefferson County Sherrif's Dept., What you all do is not just a job, it's a calling and a lifestyle. I have the utmost respect and love for each and every one of you, and your friends & family that support you! I pray that you all stay safe! Thanks again for all that you do for Jefferson County and it's residents!
Hey guys. There's a curfew again tonight.
Were you guys able to look into this?
Per the Sheriff’s comments on camera at a recent protest... Why did the Sheriff’s daughters get a ticket? Was the ticket given for a valid offense? Is him “getting the ticket taken back” not an ethics violation? Are he and his family to be considered above the law? Should the ticket not be paid just like all the rest of us would have to do? Why would he be surprised that the daughters of the Sheriff received a ticket? He leads off with how “you would think the Sheriff and his family would be immune to getting tickets”. Apparently they are just immune to having to pay them.
