On Thursday, November 17, 2016, I received a special visit from two retired Sheriffs of Scotland County. Sheriff Wayne Bryant and Sheriff Buddy Blalock took the time out of their busy schedules to stop by and spend some time chatting. What a humbling experience for me to listen to both veteran Sheriffs as they sat and talked. What a Blessing to see them once again entered through the doors of the office they both once held. For Sheriff Bryant it had been 15 years and for Sheriff Blalock it had been 10 years since visiting the Sheriff's Office and the office they once held. Both Sheriff Bryant and Sheriff Blalock have dedicated many years of their life protecting and serving the Citizens of North Carolina and Scotland County. Thank you Sheriff Bryant and Sheriff Blalock for your service. You both are welcome back anytime. God Bless Sheriff Kersey

From the Sheriff The North Carolina Governor's Highway Safety Program (GHSP) has launched a new website, BeSmarterThanThat.com, to educate citizens about the risks of drunk driving and to suggest alternative means of transportation to prevent it from happening. The website works across all mobile devices and can be used to call a cab or phone a friend, as well as to find public transportation based on a user's current location. It can also link to social media accounts to enable a user who has been drinking to reach out to friends for a safe way home. Last year, 418 people died in North Carolina as a result of crashes involving drunk drivers. So far this year, there have been 152 drunk-driving fatalities on state roads. Although law enforcement officers work diligently to remove drunk drivers from roadways, the best way to keep citizens safe is to prevent drunk driving from happening in the first place. Anyone that plans to drink should take advantage of BeSmarterThanThat.com to find a safe way home. With this new website, making the right decision – not to drink and drive – is simple." BeSmarterThanThat.com is another powerful tool to reduce drunk-driving fatalities in the state. It is important to make responsible, safe personal decisions, but it is also important to look out for others. Join GHSP in staying safe and in preventing drunk driving. Don't Drink and Drive. You're Smarter Than That.

From the Sheriff Project Paws The National Media makes police out as a villian, our police are under attack. As you know, the police are there to provide law and order to our communities. They are there to serve and protect, they are the good guys. I read an article in a newspaper about a SC police department giving small stuffed animals to children in stressful situations. I went to Sheriff Kersey and he was very excited with this project. We call our project PAWS "Police Assisting With Stress". The stuffed animals will be used by the police for children involved in traumatic experiences, as accident victims, crime victims and wherever the police can provide comfort and trust to children. The members and friends of the Republican Party have purchased stuffed animals for our Laurinburg Police and Scotland County Sheriff's Office. Buying a Stuffed Animal is fun. Especially when you know it will help a child in a stressful situation and make that child think good thoughts of the police! We hope to bring a smile to the face of a child that is need of comforting. Thank you. Scotland County GOP Thank you Scotland County GOP for caring and your support. Scotland County Sheriff's Office

From the Sheriff Halloween (Costumes) As I have been in and out of the office today I have sense the urgency to post this early Halloween warning. I know many are searching for that perfect Costume to buy and wear on Halloween. As of today October 18th, 2016, we are approximately 13 days from Halloween. As your Sheriff your safety is my biggest concern. Most of you are aware of the clown sightings that have occurred in our county over the last couple of months. The intent of those that are wearing these costumes is to scare and spark fear into the Citizens of our County. As your Sheriff, I would recommend to you that this may not be a good year to dress up as a clown and I would recommend choosing another costume. . . There are some that think the clown sightings in the last couple of months is just a joke, I warn you, don’t get caught up in this movement. All you’re going to do is just get yourself hurt or someone hurt. If you choose to wear a clown costumes I would recommend staying home. Scare your friends if you want or scare your relatives but, if you choose to leave your home do not participate in scaring random people on the streets. Again, joking could get you hurt or in trouble with law enforcement. Halloween is all about having fun and that is the way it should be but not at the expense of you getting hurting or someone else. In closing, As your Sheriff I recommend that those participating in Halloween be aware of the traffic, wear reflective clothing, wear costumes that are not too loose so they don’t get caught on objects. Parents stay with your kids at all times and always inspect any candy given to them.. Happy Halloween Sheriff Kersey
