Jefferson County Deputy Sheriff’s Reserves are very active in the Community. We provide security for different events in the county such as the teen dances at the Park and Recreation Center, the Mountain Heritage Arts and Crafts Festivals, County Fair, and the Relay For Life. We also provide traffic control for special events that take place in the County such as the Charles Town and Harper Ferry Christmas Parades, Blue Knights Motorcycle Ride, Home and Garden Tours, and other events where traffic will be an issue. We are involved in finger printing kids at different events and locations within the county.
Finger printing kids provides the parents with a card that not only contains the child’s finger prints but also has a place to put a picture and provide information about the child such as weight, heights, hair color, etc. Parents can then pull several strands of hair from the child and enclose it in the card, put the card away for safe keeping. If something should happen to the child they can give the card to the police and it will have their finger prints, picture, information and DNA evidence (from the hair follicles). It is suggested parents that this is done every two years as the child grows and their finger print becomes clearer.
Twice a year (in June and September) the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce hosts the Mountain Heritage Arts and Crafts Festival at Sam Michaels Park. The Festival is from Friday through Sunday and attracts visitors from all over the East Coast. Jefferson County Deputy Sheriff’s Reserves provide security services for the event starting the weekend before, providing security at night for the large tents and equipment that are being put in place for the show. On the Thursday before, we begin to provide security 24 hours a day as the vendors begin to set up the areas, through the end on the show on Sunday night. This event requires at least 10 Reserves during the actual show hours and at least two Reserves during non show hours. Reserves will put in an excess of 500 man hours for the entire show.
