Sheriff Schultz took advantage of this excellent free training provided by the Florida Sheriff's Association. Sheriff was able to send five supervisors, both sworn and non-sworn employees, to develop their leadership skills to better lead their teams and serve the citizens of Gilchrist County.

Sheriff Hunter took some time this morning to address the attendees of the FSA Effective Leadership Academy. Sheriff Hunter is a past president of the FSA and a strong advocate for developing leaders.

Today Sheriff Schultz attended Prom Promise at THS. This is what he had to say: “I am grateful for the opportunity to speak at Trenton Middle/High School at their "Prom Promise" activities. The students were respectful and attentive as they were told about the legal and emotional ramifications of driving under the influence of alcohol and narcotics. Under Sheriff Robert Willis also participated in the conversation and Captain Scotty Douglas, Lt. Keagon Weatherford, and Deputy Michael Rome II assisted with technology used to simulate and demonstrate the dangers of driving under the influence.
We are looking forward to speaking to Bell Middle/High School next week.”
