Jefferson County Deputy Sheriff 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, height, 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.
