Sheriff Russell and Deputies Mourn the Loss of retired Captain Bazzle Perritt

Sheriff Jay Russell and Deputies are mourning the loss of one of their own, retired Captain Bazzle Perritt.  Captain Perritt passed away Thursday, February 17, 2022.

Those of us who worked with Bazzle through the years remember him as a kind, honest person, always willing to do whatever was necessary to get the job done.  He was never too busy to help anyone that needed his assistance and had many friends.  He will be missed by all of us.  Please keep his family, friends and Deputies in your prayers during this time.
