Sheriff hosts cookout for department staff

Posted: Updated:

Some of our Valley's bravest at the Mahoning County Sheriff's Department were not only treated to great weather on Friday but were also treated to lunch, courtesy of Sheriff Jerry Greene and his administration.

It's a tradition for the sheriff to have a cookout for the staff on the Friday honoring National Police Week.

Sheriff Greene says it's just one way to make sure the entire staff knows that they are appreciated.

"It's our way to show our appreciation to the officers who are actually out in the trenches and in the jail doing all the work. So it's just our way of giving back and thanking them for all of their hard work," Greene says.
