Thursday, May 25, 2023 - A proclamation for National Missing Children’s Day was signed by county commissioners during their regularly scheduled weekly meeting.
According to Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, "Since May 25, 1983, National Missing Children’s Day has been celebrated to remind parents, guardians, and other trusted caregivers to make child safety and well-being a priority. It is also a time to show appreciation for those who work to find and safely bring missing children home. It serves as an annual reminder to the nation to continue efforts to reunite missing children with their families."
"There was a lot of support today as Sheriff Larry Lane, Jr., and the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office asked the Sequoyah County Commissioners to proclaim Thursday, May 25 as Missing Children’s Day in Sequoyah County," Cindy Smith, investigator with the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office, stated. "We have a great group of commissioners. These guys understand that the protection of our children is a priority."
In new business, there was approval for payment to Robinson Construction for Indian Road Emergency Repair, Site D, Sequoyah County Dist. #2.
In addition, there was approval of an application for the State of Oklahoma’s Attorney General's "Safe Oklahoma" grant (SCSO) and approval of DARE agreements by and between the Sequoyah County Sheriff's Department and Liberty and Central Schools.
