"Fellow Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police,
For those of you who feel as I do that one of our most important duties is to take care of our employees, I suggest you consider the following: supporting and encouraging an organization such as El Dorado County's THRIVE.
THRIVE is an emotional support group that concerns itself with the overall health and welfare of the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office personnel and their families.
As the Posse President and Former Sheriff, I have worked with and encouraged THRIVE and have been pleased with the outcome of that support. I suggest again that you look seriously toward such an organization.
I salute THRIVE for what they have accomplished in a few short years. The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office is a better place to work because of THRIVE!"
