From the Desk of Charlotte County Sheriff Thomas D. Jones:
I was elected your Sheriff in November 1987. Since then I have had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people who reside here in Charlotte County. Your trust and your support of me has been overwhelming.
I only hope I have accomplished what I intended, providing you with the best law enforcement services available, and meeting your needs, as a public service agency. Our goal has always been to protect and serve.
To my family, I owe a debt that I can never repay. Their support and the sacrifices made have been never ending. They have truly been my rock and I look forward to spending more time with them.
I leave a staff that is totally dedicated to enforcing the laws of the Commonwealth and serving Charlotte County to the best of their ability. I only hope they know how proud I am of them and how thankful I am for the support they have given to me.
Last but certainly not least I give thanks to God for the blessings I have received. He has guided me through my career and blessed us all in so many ways, especially keeping us safe. I have never lost an officer or had one seriously injured, and that is truly a blessing.
Once again, I thank you the citizens for your trust, your friendship and for allowing me to serve you for so long. It has been a pleasureI
May God bless you and may he bless Charlotte County.
Thomas D. Jones Sheriff
