Letters To The Editor

I am writing this letter in regards to Chief Deputy Joel Beecher who works for Emanuel County Sheriff’s Department. I want everyone to know how much my family and I appreciate the work that Deputy Beecher did involving my case.
On Jan. 4, I was robbed of two rings and a pair of diamond earrings. The two rings belonged to my husband who died in 1983. My daughters and I were devastated when we discovered them missing because of their sentimental value. I contacted the police as soon as possible and Deputy Beecher arrived at my home with all intentions of finding my belongings.
As weeks passed, Deputy Beecher updated me on any information pertaining to my case. I was contacted by him to come to the Sheriff’s Department on Jan. 27. To my surprise, Deputy Beecher had my husband’s rings in his hand. I was impressed with the determination and concern that he showed in finding those rings. His kindness, thoughtfulness and thoroughness in finding those rings meant a great deal to me and I am proud to know that someone of his stature is working for our county. His dedication to service and perseverance are to be admired and highly appreciated. Words will never be enough to thank him for returning the rings that have been in this family for over 20 years. Deputy Beecher displayed a true commitment to serving the community and this trait, if carried by all, would make the world a better place to live.
My girls and I thank Deputy Beecher from the bottom of our hearts. We think the county as a whole should show more appreciation to the sheriff and his deputies for the risks they take, the service they provide and a job well done.
