We wish to extend our gratitude to the Cobb County Sheriff's Deputies who work around the clock at the Cobb County Adult Detention Facility. While we are peacefully asleep in our beds each night, these deputies are ensuring criminals are kept safely locked behind bars and away from the general population where they can commit more crimes on innocent citizens. Every level of criminal imaginable is detained there and the deputies who are tasked with the responsibility of detaining them have their hands full. Never underestimate the dangers and the challenges these men and women face. While officers on the road are dealing with potential criminals in the mix of citizens they see every day, these deputies are faced with nothing but the criminals and without the self protection carried by officers on the street patrols. When inmates choose to attack, as they quite often do, most of these deputies have only their hands and a small can of pepper spray with which to defend themselves. Never forget what they do. Never underestimate their strength, commitment, and the challenges they face. While we may see officers on the road patrolling our neighborhoods and feel grateful that they are around to keep us safe, we must also remember that the silent guardians who are at the Cobb County Adult Detention Facility are keeping us safe, as well.
Blue Thanksgiving delivered dinner to two of the shifts working on July 4th and July 24th and a delivery of baked goods was delivered another day in addition, thanks to the generous donation made by Publix of Kennesaw.
