It's hard to believe it's already 2017, AND that we're already at the end of February!

Time sure flies by. Of course, the work of the court never stops, and law enforcement are on duty 24/7. Before too much more time slips away, I'd like to take a moment to thank our law enforcement community for the fantastic work they do every minute of every day. 

I look forward to continuing to work closely with law enforcement this year and to serving our outstanding Delaware community. Let's make it a great, wonderful, and safe year!
