My heart goes out to all those at the Tree of Life Synagogue and to the families of those whose lives were taken in a senseless act of hate and violence. May their memories be blessings.
The members of the Sheriff’s Department conduct regular security checks on all places of worship to ensure everyone’s safety. When events such as what took place at the Tree of Life Synagogue take place the Sheriff’s Department takes the appropriate course of action and increases patrols at all places of worship and reaches out to members of various faiths to provide any assistance they may need during these heightened times.
I encourage everyone in our community should they hear something or see something of concern please reach out to law enforcement and inform them.
