Sheriff Smith announces will seek third term

By  | 

GREENE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Greene County Sheriff Steve Smith says he will seek a third term in office this November.

In a post on his Facebook page, Smith mentions several things that have occurred during his time in the position.

These include providing 24/7 unwanted and outdated prescription drug drop boxes, the youth academy, KID-KARD, and a firearm safety/conceal weapon class.

He also explains how the sheriff's office has saved residents' money by being frugal and staying engaged with area youth.

There is an internship program that allows students to work in the sheriff's office, where they learn and experience by working in the office before they pursue a career in law enforcement.

The KID-KARD program helps parents provide necessary information when a child disappears, including date of birth, picture, measurements and their fingerprint.

Under the Assign-a-Highway program, trustees and people who are court-ordered to do community service pick up trash and litter along the roadways in the area.

Each term of office is four years.
