Reserve Deputy Barry Shelton,
I am honored to be a reserve with the same county you were with. As reserve officers we know the love and respect of the job as an officer. We volunteer our time for free and know the cost could be great. We do this knowing what we do will help the county we work for. We do this because it is a passion for being a LEO. Thank you for all you did and RIP.
