The mission of the sheriff’s office is to serve and protect. After reading the Wednesday’s article in the Gazette Record there seems to be some confusion.
Benewah Community Hospital has a temporary face mask policy in place to protect the staff, patients and the community. This is not a violation of anyone’s rights, it is a matter of courtesy and respect for others. I am disappointed with the conduct of the deputies.
As public servants they should be leaders and set a positive example and support the hospital’s policy. This is serving and protecting.
