Message from the Sheriff

As we approach summer, the Barry County Sheriff's Office is gearing up for a busy time of the year--as school has dismissed and our neighbors are getting outside to enjoy barbeques, festivals and other outdoor events. We also want to take this time to give a big congratulations to all our area graduates and wish them the best of luck in the future, whether that is away at college, into a career, or somewhere in between!

As always, we would like to remind everyone to drive cautiously as children will be out playing, riding bikes, and enjoying the summer weather.

Of course, summer weather usually means higher temperatures, so remember these tips to beat the heat:

  • Take frequent water breaks
  • Apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15
  • Never leave children or pets unattended in a vehicle. 
  • Seek medical attention immediately for any signs of heat-related illness

While you are traveling our roadways, boating, camping, or fishing, please remember to practice safety at all times. Mind the speed limits and always be on the lookout for children at play and crossing the streets.

The Barry County Sheriff's Office hopes everyone has a great, safe & healthy summer! Congratulations again to our graduates!

 

Sheriff D. Boyd
