Wisconsin sheriffs help out Texas sheriffs in the wake of Harvey devastation
MONROE, Wis. — The Green County Sheriff’s Office is hard at work helping the sheriff’s departments affected by Hurricane Harvey through the Sheriffs Adopting Sheriffs program.
According a release from the sheriff’s office, the Green County department is a member of the Wisconsin Badger State Sheriff’s Association, which initially designed the Sheriffs Adopting Sheriffs program to help sheriff’s departments affected by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
The program exists to help sheriffs and their families who have been affected by natural disasters such as hurricanes, and exists to help first responders whose struggles in the wake of disasters are often lost in the shuffle.
According to the release, the program will run in counties across Wisconsin until Oct. 4.
